Question Regarding ANA Ambassadors

| user_4256

I'm researching a token and have some questions. The token is dated 1980. It appears to be a sort of calling card or challenge coin. It is made metal of some sort with nothing on the reverse. The obverse is enameled with whit and blue paint with contains the following information; "Ed Black" along the top; "A.N.A. Dist Rep" U.S. Assay 1975", "TAMS", "$2 FDC" and "NJ Cents" along the left side; "FUN NN", "Ambassador", "N.V.C.C.", "#1", "L.C.C. #1"; and "Lakeland, FLA.", "1980" along the bottom. My guess is that "Ed Black" handed it out and that he was/is an ANA Ambassador, ANA District Representative and coin dealer. Please let me know if you have any insight.
Thanks Jack Bell.

I know this is an old question but wanted to thank you all for the helpful information. I'm new to blogging and forgot about my question.

What was the purpose of the token? Did Ed Black hand the tokens out like a business card? What is a challenge card ? Anyone know ? This has made me curious. Thanks

I am wondering if this is some kind of credential from FUN. Seems like a pretty poor choice of calling card for someone as accomplished as Mr. Black. A picture would be helpful.

Mokie has it. Good luck.

Edward J. Black, to be exact. Lakeland Florida, ANA District Representative for Florida at that timeframe. He was appointed by President Gerald Ford to the Assay Commision in 1975.
