Code of Ethics

As a member of Blue Ridge Numismatists Association:

I agree to support and be governed by the Constitution of BRNA and the BY-LAWS of the BRNA, and such rules, policies, and regulations as may be in force.

I agree to conduct myself as to bring no reproach or discredit to the BRNA or impair the prestige of membership therein.

I agree to base all my dealings on the highest plane of justice, fairness and morality.

I agree to neither buy nor sell numismatic items of which the ownership is questionable.

I agree to conform to the accepted standards of dignified advertising.

I agree to take immediate steps to correct any error I may make in any transaction.

I agree not to sell, exhibit, produce, nor advertise counterfeit copies, restrikes, or reproductions of any numismatic items if their nature is not clearly indicated by the word “counterfeit,” “copy,” “restrike,” or “reproduction” incused in the metal or printed on the paper thereof, with the exception of items generally accepted by numismatists and not in any way misrepresented as genuine.

I agree to represent a numismatic item to be genuine only when, to the best of my knowledge and belief, it is authentic.

I agree to fulfill all contracts made by me, either orally or written, to make prompt payments upon delivery and to return any items immediately that are not satisfactory.

I agree to give aid to members in their quest for numismatic knowledge.

I agree most of all to put the welfare of BRNA above any personal gain to myself. A breach of this Code of Ethics shall be cause for action by the Board of Directors.
