Arthur C "Art" Matz (2014)

Charter Member of IBNS #0022-C, Art is nominated for his long work in running the Latin America Paper Money Society (LANSA), founded in 1973.

He supported LANSA all through its existence and 40 years later is still the US point of contact and is active as its president.
