    I have nearly complete set ( only missing 1980 ) in .999 Silver. I think the first was 1974 or 1975. They were issued by the Vandalia-Butler C of C. Does anyone have a Silver 1980 for sale ? Larry Evans

    1974, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the grand. That's also the first year that they gave out the attendance pins. as we know them. Prior to 1974 they gave out a type written name tag hanging from a ribbon.

    The Sparta Chamber is selling them. They come in either silver or bronze. They are numbered and limited. Silver cost $40, I believe the bronze are about $10. Yes, they usualy have some available at the Grand, collectors from past years have first chance to buy.
