American Numismatic Association

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 1, 2003

CONTACT: Stephen Bobbitt
         Telephone: 719/632-2646 x113

                                 Q. DAVID BOWERS
                     RECEIVES ANA'S EXEMPLARY SERVICE AWARD

     The American Numismatic Association (ANA) Exemplary Service Award is
presented for services performed on behalf of the ANA.
     First conferred in 1991, the ANA Exemplary Service Award is presented
to an individual, club or corporation, firm or association whose services
to the ANA are deemed "above and beyond the call." The 2003 recipient is
Q. David Bowers.
     Q. David Bowers--noted author, collector dealer and auctioneer, is
one of the most recognized people in numismatics. At age 17, he was the
youngest person to have a bourse table at the 1955 ANA convention in
Omaha, Nebraska. He opened his first company under his own name in 1953 at
age 15, and since then the Bowers name has been attached to more than 10
numismatic firms.
     Perhaps more than for any modern-day numismatist, Bowers' research
and commentary as a cataloger, columnist and author demonstrate his
outstanding and continued support of the numismatic community.  With his
casual style and sense of what is important, Bowers has educated thousands
of collectors during his many decades in the hobby, effectively
communicating both the historic and entertaining.
     An award-winning writer, Bowers has authored more than 35 books,
scores of articles and columns, including the two-volume, 1,744-page ANA
Centennial History. In 2000 he received the Burnett Anderson Memorial
Award for Excellence in Numismatic  Writing, which is presented annually
to a researcher, author or journalist in recognition of his or her
contributions to numismatics.
     A past president of the ANA, Bowers has earned the Association's
highest honors, including the Farran Zerbe Memorial Award for
Distinguished Service. In 1994 he was inducted into the ANA Numismatic
Hall of Fame.
     In bestowing the Exemplary Service Award on Q. David Bowers, the
American Numismatic Association presents a certificate and expresses the
sincere appreciation of its members.

Vicious.  Vile.  Probably accurate, though.  :-)

Perhaps true from a public perspective, but I know firsthand that Dave is
absolutely overwhelmed with the support he has received from a world full
of grateful hobbyists and associates.  While I can't speak for Dave, I
would bet the farm that this past year has had more good than bad. Last I
spoke with him his morale seemed fine, his spirit unbreakable.

No matter what, he is still The Man, as far as I am concerned. I just
hope he is busy writing. :)

I would be very surprised if he doesn't wind up as an officer at ANR,
once his restrictive covenant period expires.

You and me both, Barry.  Perhaps even the one with the biggest
and best title in the company.
