That coin is the one I obtained from the S1 shop on arrival in 12/2980 or more probably whilst inprocessing in 1/ or 2/1981. I showed up for duty in MI company as a leg and was immediately exported to Benning and Jump School. I didn't get to SFQC until 1983. By then I'd been through several coins.

They would fall out of a guy's pocket when he disrobed to please some chick from Disco Devens while pulling CQ/DNCO in the building.

I probably ought to amass coins from the units I was in, now that I'm long retarded.

In the early 1980s, the coin was still unknown outside of SF. And nobody said "Hooah" anywhere except around lots of Ragnars. Now every national guard independent heavy typewriter company has its own coin, and the freakin' Family Support Group hooahs all over the place.

Yes, that is my wife's, mine was "acquired" by another, but has my name on the back, waiting to have someone drop it on me.
We sell the same one, may be a little more detailed, here's the 60th.

Don't believe silver coins have been made since the early 80's..

We're looking into having the 1-10th SFG(A) silver coins made... But still looking for the original coin manufacturer (and hopefully the mold) in Germany.

Don't know if this helps but, I believe the Robbins Co. from Attleboro, Mass made coins. I have no idea if they are even still in operation.

Just noticed this thread. I know a gentlemen connected to the Army Heraldry dept in Ft Bellview. If you are still looking, pm me and I can get you in touch with him. If he doesn't know, he can find out.

The New Type Challenge Coin ???

I was at Ft. Bragg for All American Week last week stayed at Moon Hall and had the chance to meet SF soldiers who were staying at Moon Hall while attending NCO training at the schoolhouse. One of the SF soldiers gave me a "Poker Chip" which is their challenge coin. Not made from metal or plastic but same material the casino poker chips are made from.Different from the usual metal coins that have been around forever. Regard's, Tom Kelly
