Airborne Challenge Coin
The 17th Cavalry Regiment is a historical organization within the United States Army that began as a regiment of cavalry after the Pancho Villa Expedition. Formerly a part of the 1950s Combat Arms Regimental System, it was reorganized as a part of the U.S. Army Regimental System, an ongoing effort to maintain the lineage and history of the U.S. Army through its units. Today, the 17th Cavalry Regiment is found across the army within the combat aviation brigades, where the squadrons, now constituted as attack/recon helicopter squadrons, carry on the legacy of the 17th Cavalry Regiment.
This challenge coin is commissioned to us by the 1st Squadron of the 17th Cavalry Regiment, a Heavy Attack Reconnaissance Squadron called SABER. They wanted a ‘wing’ as opposed to a common usual shaped challenge coin. And the basic concept of this coin is that pretty simple yet very distinctive, and really represent what the Airborne is all about.
We needed to make sure that all the details are crafted perfectly. From the feathers of the wings, to the lines & colors of the insignias, and the sculpted hilt of the sword, are all need to be executed smoothly that every detail is not missed.
