In addition to being the author of NLG award winning World’s Greatest Mint Errors, Mike Byers is president of Byers Numismatic Corp., the largest dealer of the world’s rarest mint errors. In the last decade, Byers has made more discoveries of major mint errors both in the United States and around the world than any other dealer.

The Numismatic Literary Guild was founded in 1968 to honor excellence and bestow recognition to those who have contributed significantly to numismatic literature. Every year the NLG receives submissions from authors, publishers, and editors for their entries to be considered for an award in various categories. A panel of numismatic editors and qualified individuals judge the entries and the awards are presented at the annual NLG Bash. This year the NLG Bash was held at the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money in Los Angeles, CA.
