Believe it or not, it's not bronzed. It's got some silver/gun metal/metallic plating on it. Also has serial number 0390 on the edge.
C Co 3/75 88-90 (Just Cause)

BUMP!

Here are six coins that I have found so far that I just HAVE to have for my collection. Anyone having any of these and would be willing to part with them, let me know how much you want. Of course I will pay for shipping in addition.

Image

EDITED to add: Below each coin is a description of what makes it different.

If you have other, unusual Ranger coins, let me know about those too.

Thanks for your help.

We'll need to see a photo of it first. Preferably with you holding it up at least chest height for size comparison.
