A Unique Copy of Q. David Bowers’ Coins And Collectors: Golden Anniversary Edition

There was spirited bidding for a unique copy of Q. David Bowers’ new book, Coins and Collectors: Golden Anniversary Edition, at the close of the 2014 Numismatic Bibliomania Society symposium.

What made the bidding reach the dizzying height of $1,500? This is the only advance copy of the book that currently exists outside of Whitman Publishing’s offices, autographed by the author and by Joel J. Orosz, who wrote a glowing tribute in the book’s foreword.

Congratulations to Dan H. for his winning bid, which benefits the NBS, and thanks to Dan Freidus for calling the auction.
