Sergeant Major of the Army SMA Richard A Kidd Challenge Coin 1.75 "

This Challenge Coin is not being described as “mint condition”, “authentic”, “real”, or “genuine”. Authenticity, origin, condition & value are considered to be a speculation on the part of the buyer.



The CHALLENGE COIN in the photos* is the same one you will receive.

*American currency coin(s) are for size comparison / reference only.

American currency coin(s) are not part of the auction!


Description of this Challenge Coin: (obvious flaws are highlighted in red) - used condition - likely has some minor edge wear, surface wear, scuffs, scratches, scrapes, dings, dents, divots, maybe bent, color/enamel loss, oxidation/patina, soiling and/or corrosion. Look closely at the photos and ask any questions you may have before you bid. Photos don’t always reveal every detail you may discover in person when examining the challenge coin. Therefore, this challenge coin is being auctioned “as is”.

Less than perfect condition: This challenge coin is not new, not freshly struck nor recently produced. It has not been kept in its original condition or packaging and likely has been left loose, displayed and handled by more than one individual and/or stored unprotected with other such challenge coins. I am not the original owner nor do I know who has previously owned this challenge coin.

This Challenge Coin is what I believe to be an actual example of a commissioned and specially designed token created by honorable individuals within the described units, by commanders or those within the commands, by the VIP or staff of VIPs or Organizations for the express purpose of gifting such a token to a well deserving individual emphasizing and promoting esprit de corps at special events, ceremonies or circumstances as a personal unofficial act of gratitude by the presenters to those individuals deserving of such an honor.

That said, - be aware of what you are buying - as I am not an expert on the history of any individual challenge coins, nor of the true origins of this particular example of a challenge coin. Nor do I know the unit or individuals they represent. I do not know who manufactured this challenge coin or for what purposes it was actually manufactured for. My presumption and belief that this challenge coin is “…an actual example of…” may be entirely wrong. It may, in fact, be a reproduction or what is commonly known as “a junk coin”. If you have any doubts what-so-ever, please seek an expert out for advice before you decide to bid or not to bid.
