NCBA Executive Director Named One of the Most Influential People in Numismatics

NCBA Executive Director, David Crenshaw, has been selected as one of Coin World Annual’s “Most Influential People in Numismatics” for the 2022 edition of the list. Honorees are chosen from hundreds of influencers who have contributed to the numismatic hobby in a variety of ways—as collectors, dealers, authors, artists, graders, journalists, Mint officials, and so on—and voted on by thousands of Coin World readers. According to CWA publisher Rick Amos, “[Our honorees] are disrupters, creators, organizers, marketers, fixers, doers, problem-solvers, writers, and innovators that have contributed in some meaningful way to this multi-billion-dollar industry that we all enjoy so much.” 

At a young age, David Crenshaw realized the potential of numismatics. He grabbed his first Whitman blue folder and began filling it with coins. As a teenager, he parlayed his knowledge of coins and interest in error coins and began a mail-order business that sold error coins, products featured in his own catalog called “Nobody’s Perfect.”

The Senate concurred on April 28, 2022. The exemption will take effect upon receiving the governor’s signature or 10 days after it reached the governor’s desk if he takes no action.
