Numismatists United for Political Action is testing the waters to see if there is support in the numismatic field for a lobbying push March 21 in Washington, D.C.
Nicholas Pyle, of Pyle and Associates, is soliciting feedback from the Professional Numismatists Guild, the American Numismatic Association, the Industry Council for Tangible Assets, the Gold & Silver Political Action Committee and other groups to determine if there is a credible level of interest in an effort to visit key members of the House and Senate on Capitol Hill.
No specific issues were mentioned, but any tax and regulatory issues affecting the coin business generally are of concern.
NUPA is a grass-roots effort that was started at Central States in 2010. For more information visit http://groups.google.com/group/coincollectorsunited?hl=en.
