When I proposed the creation of the Q. David Bowers Award in 2019, I thought it
was important that Central States also recognize the contributions made by the
numismatic professionals of our hobby, explained CSNS President Mitch Ernest.
like to think of this as a Lifetime Achievement Award. John Dannreuther epitomizes who
we want our award to recognize and what it stands for.
Named after prominent dealer and esteemed numismatic author Q. David
Bowers, recipients of the Bowers Award are chosen by the Central States Numismatic
Society Convention Committee led by Convention Manager Larry Shepherd.
Ernst also presented CSNS 2023 Medal of Merit Awards to David Heinrich of
Ohio and Bill Brandimore of Michigan.
