5th Grp Coin w/Black flash

Hey to all, So as a late bloomer, I had the honor serving in the Legion for a short period; 1998-2001. I received a coin with a Black enamel flash on it and enamel green beret on the opposite side. I bought several others and gave them away. One of my recipients lost his and I have been looking for replacements. Apparently a very short run coin.


So after looking all over Fayetteville, contacting Chapter 38 etc. I reached out to a coin company in Fayetteville. Seems I can have the coin replicated, but have to buy at least a hundred or even two hundred If I want them cheaper.


The question is, If I do this; How many of you would be interested in buy this coin (see picture) price would be around $10-12..... I will receive the estimate on Tuesday and let you all know if I am going forward.


This for me will NOT be a money making venture. thanks, CSM-H

Just to let everyone know, the coins have been ordered. it will take about six weeks to get maybe sooner. This is NOT a money making venture, is it will shortly be turned over to a SF organization. thanks for the support to start it up, please get the word out as I am sure these will go fast once folks see them.

TTT.

I want to throw my hat in the circle for two coins. Just shoot me an address to sent the cash (to Chapter 38) and it is gone.
