ANA MEETING TOPIC: EARLY DOLLAR LITERATURE 

   At our annual meeting at the ANA convention, W. David 
   Perkins will speak on "The Ostheimers of Philadelphia and their 
   Extraordinary Collection of Silver Dollars".   Dave is a collector, 
   student and researcher of the early United States silver dollars 
   1794-1803.  Dave also collects tokens and numismatic literature, 
   especially books, catalogs and documents pertaining to the great 
   early silver dollar collections and collectors. 

   In addition to NBS, Dave is a member of numerous numismatic 
   organizations; he has authored over 15 articles for the John Reich 
   Journal as well as articles for the TAMS Journal, Civil War Token 
   Journal and Talkin' Tokens.  His articles have won awards from 
   NLG, JRCS and TAMS.  His interest in Civil War Store Cards 
   (or tokens) started with a discovery that his great-great grandfather 
   issued two Detroit, Michigan Civil War tokens in 1863. 

   Dave was a consultant to Bowers & Merena in the cataloging of 
   the Eliasberg early silver dollars, and was a major contributor to 
   Jules Reiver's new book The United States Early Silver Dollars 
   1794 to 1803. 

   His talk is based on his research over the last decade.  The 
   Ostheimer early silver dollar collection 1793-1805 [note '1805' 
   is not a typo] included specimens from many of the great sales 
   and collections from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
