Numisma Reprinted in 1983
In response to Dave Hirt's question, Steve Shupe writes:
"I have copy #18 of the hard copy of Numisma and notes I made at the time of acquisition shows that it was printed in 1983."
Mike Bourne writes:
"My parents owned a graphic arts and printing company while also running the numismatic literature business. It was named Ramm Communications named for Remy/Avis/Mike/Marlene Bourne. 100 copies of a soft cover ringed bound edition were distributed by Cal Wilson and thru Ken Lowe of Money Tree. In addition a limited number of hard bound numbered copies were distributed to family, long term customers and to Ken Lowe and Cal Wilson. This was done in 1983. It is likely that the copy referenced was Ken Lowe's copy"
Thank you! I haven't seen the softcover edition. I have one of the hardbounds - my copy is pictured above.

Impact of the 1909 ANA Election
Darryl Atchison writes:
"Over the past 20 years there has been a great deal of interest in the
American Numismatic Association Presidential election of 1909 and the annual convention in Montreal
at which this election was held.
"It almost goes without saying that this is probably the single most
controversial event in the history of the A.N.A which is perhaps why it has
garnered so much attention - including an article in the Winter 2022 issue
of The Asylum.
"Even more than a century later this particular election is still quite
contentious - undoubtedly because of the candidates and the personalities
involved on both campaign committees..
"One thing that hasn't really been investigated is the fallout from this
election (i.e. the impact that it may have had on not only the candidates
and their campaign teams but also the general membership).
"We know that Higgins resigned from the A.N.A. shortly afterwards but I
wonder how many other members didn't renew their memberships - or even how
many of the proxy memberships weren't genuine to begin with - i.e. the
proxies represented votes but not individuals who intended to retain their
membership in either the short term or the long term.
"I wouldn't be surprised if someone has already looked into this and I would
be very interested in any of their observations."
I'm not sure if this aspect has been covered before. Great question.
