HK-580 designed by H.A. Sharpe, struck by Crofters, Inc, Chicago, IL around 1960. I have seen some of the 1970 restrikes and lesser quality aluminum pieces over the years (purchased a few purple and gold ones for fun). Does anyone own any of the Silver or Copper pieces?

HK-581, presumably a common piece (R-1) with stated production of 125,000 aluminum pieces. The true silver pieces are stated to be much rarer (30 produced). Variations in medals and designs seem rare as well. I have not personally ever seen copper or uniface silver pieces. edited by rjesinger on 11/2/2013
