Online petition for preserving the right to privately collect

As you may know, legislation is being introduced in Germany that could greatly limit the legal trade in even common ancient and modern coins as well as things like stamps, books, ceramics, cars, and art. We please ask that you sign the petition you can find by clicking on the link below not only to show our solidarity with our German colleagues, but to demonstrate our own commitment to coin collecting. The more dealers and who sign this petition, the more likely our voices will be heard collectors. It is important to show the German authorities that their action will have worldwide implications. more »
