You Have Rights

My name is Howard Cook and am a proud member of the Professional Numismatists Guild and also a member under their Accredited Precious Metals Dealer Program. Please take a minute to go to their website at www.pngdealers.org and see exactly what this means. Additionally I have been a full time numismatist since 1984, started HCC Rare Coins in 1991 and was accepted as a PNG Dealer in 1998. This organization was established in 1954 and in all of these 61 years has had less than 750 members worldwide. In fact since my induction there have been fewer than 200 new members accepted. I happen to be member #563. There are currently 311 members wordwide. I am 1 of only 4 currently in the state of Ohio with only 2 of the others operating an actual storefront business. this is a big deal for me, but is a bigger deal for you. Because by becoming a member I have promised to practice under a strict code of ethics. You may review them on their website.

And in addition to that code, I have promised to adhere to the Collector Bill of Rights ensuring collectors' rights. I am proud to present this "Bill of Rights" to the numismatic community and pledge to:

1.Not misrepresent rarity, value or quality of items sold.
2.Not use high-pressure sales tactics.
3.Never knowingly buy or sell stolen items, and assist authorities in the recovers of such items.
4.Not sell counterfeit, altered or repaired items without full disclosure to the buyer.
5.Not misrepresent the investment potential of the item(s) being sold.
6.Pay reasonable prices and pay promptly for items purchased from clients.
7.Promptly deliver items sold to clients.
8.Do their best to educate their clients or direct them to resources.
9.Give research and information to clients about items they purchase or inquire about, when requested.
10.Submit to the PNG arbitration in any unresolved dispute and abide by the arbitrators' decision. 

As owner of HCC Rare Coins  your rights will be protected and you will be treated and respected as a valued client. I am confident that once you have visited us with whatever your numismatic need, buying or selling, you will not only come back but will be an advocate for this company. Please view our website for further information or call us direct to set that valuable appointment. 1-800-422-4405
