    It is almost a perfect design Basil. Is there any way you could incorporate buffalo wings into the logo? Just curious, I would buy one then.

  2. Dean J. Burchill says:

    Very nice work by Basil, Peleshok, and the coin committee. It looks like a winner to me and my wife.

    Also thanks to Bob Wangen for making this available.

  3. Jeremy Plaxton says:

    It is awesome in every way!

  5. Donald Bugg says:

    Wonderful job gang! Basil, it’s amazing that you could put so much history on a coin.

    My only suggestion is that since the 425 was an Airborne Ranger Company for 18 years, I’d like to see Airborne Ranger reflected on the scroll on the back of the coin, instead of LRS…which is already on the front of the coin.

  6. Mike Sorvick says:

    I agree with Don Bugg on the Logo about the Airborne Ranger on the scroll; and I’d add a 3X5 card with the sale of each coin, explaining the histroy of the unit, make a nice additional touch.

  7. Jeff Hunt says:

    Looks great Basil, I think I agree w/ Bugg and Sorvick, the old scroll kinda adds some more historical significance to it.

  8. Fernando Campos says:

    Excellent work. If I may suggest this from my years as unit historian, the scroll should be the Ranger Airborne, as it was the only scroll authorized for Co F, which reflects our true lineage. The LRS scroll is something that was never authorized nor ever attempted to run it through the US Heraldry Dept, as we were attempting to reinstate the scroll in the mid 1990s once we received authorization for the Regimental Colors and Crest, which as you know, took many years to acomplish. If you want to retain the LRS scroll, it should be on the back side of the coin. Again, GREAT JOB. SFC Campos

    Hey Basil….. The coin looks great!!! I will be ordering 3 for former Co F. members. Talk to ya soon.  

  13. Jesse F Capetillo says:

    I agree, the coin does look BA. I will be ordering a few coins myself. I also agree with SFC Compose and Bugg. I would like to see the “Ranger Airborne” on the scroll on the back of coin. When I first came on board The scroll issued to me Read: Co F Ranger Airborne 452 INF. In any case, Great job SSG Basil!!!

  14. Paul Ballmann says:

    Looks great!  How do we order one?

    Hi Paul,

    The link is on the home page, but click on this link,, to go to the order form.

  16. Dean Burchill says:

    We also have a similar coin that was donated by Elwood Kyle.  It is only 1″ in diameter without colors.  But it has a raised feature.

    You can use the same form that Bob indicated above.  They are $7 each and $3 for each additional one.

    Or you can order one of each for $20.
