The coins were chemically aged so the patina looks great right out of the package and will look even better with more wear from handling and daily carry. The coin is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. Coloring and patinas may slightly vary. There are no identical coins!
These coins are unique and are akin to a traditional military challenge coin.
