Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Tegestologist

Answer: Beer Mats/Coasters

Coasters are used to protect surfaces like tables and are typically used to set glasses upon them. Beer mats are usually small circular or square mats with beer advertising on them, used as a surface protector by pubs and cardboard ones were first introduced during the 1880s in Germany. Coasters and beer mats must have good water absorbency. Tegestology is derived from the latin term 'teges'.
2. Numismatist

Answer: Coins

Numismatists can be divided into three groups: collectors, dealers and scholars. Collectors are those who collect coins merely for pleasure or as a hobby. Coin dealers are professionals who verify the authenticity and grade coins according to their condition as a prerequisite to buy and sell them. Scholars are those who are interested in the history of coins.
3. Deltiologist

Answer: Postcards

Postcard collecting is among the most popular collecting hobby after stamps and coins. Most people collect them while on vacation, at flea markets and even on the internet. The term deltiology was first introduced in 1945 by Randall Rhoades, an Ohio professor. Postcards are also collected by historians as well as schools for teaching aids.
4. Philatelist

Answer: Stamps

A Philatelist is ordinarily a stamp collector but may also be interested in the history or the study of them. The art of Philately uses a set of tools such as tongs, a magnifying glass and a perforation gauge as well as stamp books, catalogues and hinges. The very first adhesive postage stamp was the 'Penny Black' issued by Great Britain in 1840.
5. Conchologist

Answer: Shells

A conchologist is generally regarded as a collector of seashells or mollusc shells. However, not all conchologists collect shells as some of them merely study them. Conversely, not all shell collectors are conchologists because they usually don't study them but rather have them for sentimental value only. A large collection is available for viewing at the Smithsonian Institution.
6. Phillumenist

Answer: Matchbooks

A Phillumenist collects items that are related to matches such as matchbooks. The term was introduced by British collector Marjorie Evans in 1943. The practice of Phillumeny can be traced back to the early nineteenth century when travellers would bring back matchbooks or matchboxes from countries they had visited. This hobby became a popular activity during 1960s to the 1980s.
7. Arctophilist

Answer: Teddy Bears

Teddy bears are most commonly associated with children's toys and were originally made with plush material stuffed with straw and beans. These collections are thought to have originated in England during the Victorian era and became popular around the turn of the twentieth century in America, Germany and France.
8. Lepidopterist

Answer: Butterflies

A lepidopterist can be either a butterfly collector or someone who studies butterflies or both. The root of this interest stems from the Post-Renaissance period during which an increase in science and nature prompted this activity. Explorers would often make expeditions to various parts of the world to gather specimens. Large collections of butterflies can be seen in museums throughout the world.
9. Notaphilist

Answer: Banknotes

A notaphilist is a hobbyist who collects or studies banknotes and paper money. Collectors firmly established notaphily as a hobby in the 1970s but people began collecting paper money ever since it was used as a medium for payment. Collections are typically valued according to grade/condition and verified for authenticity.
10. Oologist

Answer: Bird Eggs

The collecting of bird eggs was initially used by the scientific community during the 1800s but later also became a hobby in the twentieth century. Egg collectors typically seek out rare birds and often trade with one another to build their collection. Collectors always remove the contents of the egg, otherwise, the egg will rot.
