ANA History By Q. David Bowers (ANA L.M. 336)

125 Years of Collecting with the
American Numismatic Association.


“The annual ANA convention took place in Dallas in 1953, and J. Hewitt Judd was the new president. That same year, the second general assembly of the International Association of Professional Numismatists (IAPN) was held. The convention auction was dynamic, confirming that the rare coin market was strong once again.”

Correspondence to Eric P. Newman (EPN)
from John J. Ford (JJF)

XXII (22nd) IAPN General Assembly
Washingont, D.C.
September 1973

EPN  I understand that the boys in
Munich, Milan, Rome, Lebanon utilize
a resin compound for their die-moulds -
not unlike hard rubber in appearance
further, info indicates that the
striking process involves powdered
metallurgy - scintering? - Stefano
Johnson, Milan, is a heavy importer
of a Goodyear T & R product according
to one source, but this info
cannot be verified.

Abe Kosoff: Dean of Numismatics by Q. David Bowers

"The following month, September (1973), saw Abe Kosoff attending the yearly congress of the International Association of Professional Numismatists. While there he delivered a paper on the subject of American territorial gold coins, one of his favorite series. The 20-minute time allowance made it impossible to be detailed, so he covered the history in brief form. The talk was well received and was later reprinted in Coin World. At the same event, the International Association of Professional Numismatists awarded a gold medal of honor to Abe Kosoff for outstanding service to numismatics. A similar medal went to Donald Crowther of London. These presentations were only the sixth and seventh times that members were so honored in the 22-year history of the IAPN."

Coins: For the Year Ahead

By Thomas V. Haney, January 4 , 1970


"A GENERAL air of optimism surrounds the numismatic field going into 1970. Most of the dealers we interviewed expect continued activity in buying and selling by col lectors of coins, paper currency, tokens, medals and books."


"Jacques Schulman of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, will be in charge of the 1970 session of the International Association of Professional Numismatists, scheduled for May in The Hague."

The Nineteenth General Assembly was held in Scheveningen, the Netherlands, May 1970.
