According to the list as published in K1ZM's book "DXing on the Edge -
The Thrill of 160 Meters" (c) 1997, the first five 160 DXCCs are:

1) W1BB
2) W1HT
3) W8LRL
4) KV4FZ
5) K1PBW

Due to a clerical error there were two #25 G3RPB and OK1ATP.  There was
no #99 to compensate.

Jeff lists the first 250 certificates issued - many calls will be very
familiar to old-timers on top band.
