Lost 1BN coin

Trying to do a good deed... I came across this on my Facebook feed and thought I would share it here. A Blackwater alumni posted from a friend. I DO NOT know the original poster but I do know the BW guy. If think you may know someone who lost their coin, hit me up and I will pass the word on.

Facebook Message below

“Hey guys. Not gonna put the bar I work at, but I work my night job at a bar in downtown Nashville. Off of Broadway, on 2nd Ave. We found a coin that is probably very special to a patron. If you had lost your coin and it's yours, or someone you know, please reach out to me and I will give POC and link up with you to figure out which bar you think you had left it. This happened today about an hour ago. Hopefully we can track down the brother that lost his unit coin. If it's your coin, then you will have the 4 digit code on the back. DM me with it, and u get my POC and location”.

Must be a 'newer' coin, since mine doesn't have anything like a code on it.

1/75 has a reunion in a few months and has been talking about it on a social media site. I'll put out the word through that medium.

Thanks. I hope it will be returned to the rightful owner
