Circa 1976-1980 US Coast Guard Barque Eagle Token

Tokens | AC coin$

USCG Token: Barque Eagle,

US Coast Guard,

38mm Aluminum


This token was usually given or sold when the USCGC Barque Eagle came import to all its operational destinations as part of a community endorsement relations venue. It was and it is still sold at many of the US Coast Guard Exchange Stores and bases.


One of my relatives got it from his father around 1979-1980 as a gift. It bears the passage of time over its surfaces but it can still be read clearly and I consider it a valuable gift from a good soul and source. Even though I have written about a US Coast Guard Cutter token, I have included my relative's Navy cap E-5 metal badge pic thankful for his gift.

In my own words.

Thanks Mike, this token was a gift from one of my relatives who got it from his father who was proud of him for serving in the US Navy. My relative did a couple of special service tours with the US Coast Guard and all the basic info he got from his own research on the token he passed it on to me. However, it is a rather known token and it is still available at many related websites.
