Global Response Staff (GRS)
Benghazi, Libya Remembrance
Challenge Coin
Version #1


Condition: Used, and in nice shape.

Please see picture. This coin was acquired from a member of The Company.

This is the Benghazi remembrance coin.  This version has been more collectible for some reason, maybe less of them created?  This is only the second one we have had in past 6 years.

This is the original, first version which has a Roman Numeral error IXX on the coin, which is not a valid Roman Number. The correct Roman Number is XIX for 19, for the 19th position of the alphabet for the letter "S" in GRS.

The coin is 1 13/16 (just over 1 3/4") inches in diameter, raised relief with hard baked enamel.

Where the three Roman Numerals correspond to three positions in the alphabet, and spell GRS for Global Response Staff:

VII = 7=G, XVIII=18=R, and IXX=19=S (Incorrect Roman Numeral 19)
