First up my apologies for not getting out the SWJ challenge coin as yet. They are on the way this week. Without making too much of an excuse, I moved to Florida from Virginia this year and had items placed in storage in both states. I had all the envelopes addressed and ready to send only to discover that my cache of coins ended up in a Virginia storage area. They have arrived here in sunny Largo and will be heading off this week. Thanks for your understanding and patience. - Dave D.
