SOCnet Legal Benefit Auction: CUSTOM SF 18D pin

ALCON: 10 day auction for an amazing custom 18 Delta pin.

Special Forces distinctive unit insignia, with an overlaid caduceus. Very unique and also very telling as to the type of man the wearer is...

You'll not see anything like this in any stores, that's for sure.

Proceeds from the auction to benefit SOCnet members currently being crushed with legal bills stemming from an ongoing 1st Amendment case.

Bid high, and help your brothers in need, folks. There is a "no shit" need to put some coin together for these guys.

Opening bid is $20


EDITED TO ADD: Closing at 2100 hours, 5 April 15.

As with the General McAuliffe autographed photo from last year, the winner of the auction has stout-heartedly and generously flipped the item, to maximize the intended goal of the whole shooting match, that being the generation of funds to help out our beleaguered brothers.

No one is willing to place a bid? On this one-of-a-kind SF Crest, once briefly owned and flipped by a genuine has-been like me?

Sad...

Got no need for it but I'll match the winning bid in a donation to the fund (up to $150).

That means if it auctions for $150 the winner gets the pin and SOCNET gets $300.

And go.

Right now Smith is winning at $75 and I'm matching at $75 for total of $150 donated.

We can do better. It's for a good cause. I will match up to $200. That's potentially $400 to the fund.

You cheap bastards. Someone go $100 on this thing at least.

$100 gets you the pin. it gets Socnet $200 since I'm matching.

Plus the 150 original bid, already paid.

These auctions are for our own internal benefit, nobody's profit.
