Dr. James Mease:  A Candidate for the ANA Hall of Fame

Dr. James Mease: A Candidate for the ANA Hall of Fame

By Q. David Bowers, Founder

One of the most important figures in American numismatics is James Mease, M.D., of Philadelphia. In the early 19th century he was the first to publish important studies on the subject. Although he is known to and has been discussed in print by such modern scholars as David F. Fanning, Eric P. Newman, and Joel Orosz, he is unknown to perhaps 99% of numismatists active today.
