While getting parts off a Red Fiero Formula in Las Vegas, I came a cross a SUPER SABRE SOCIETY Coin under the seat, properly means a lot to the person who owned it, so if anyone knows who it might belong to please message me so it might find it's way back to it's owner, sadly from what was written on the window, the car was running when it came into the yard. (Sold at auction) Looks like it was in pretty good condition before the yard vultures got to it.

Wow! That's a pretty distinguished group. Good on ya' for trying to find the owner.

I'm not sure when this particular aircraft was last deployed. I know that it's been a while, so I fear that the owner of said coin may be deceased, especially considering the disposition of the car.

Nevertheless, I wish you luck.

Many times a member of a group such as the Super Sabre Society gives a coin as a token of thanks. The military started giving out coins many, many years ago to thank people for good deeds and a remembrance of an occasion. The coin may have belonged to someone who would value the coin but may not be a member of the Society themselves. Just speculating. I'd suggest contacting the Society and ask their opinion.

As an aside, we got air support in Vietnam from a Super Sabre Squadron once or twice in 1968. They flew very low to the deck and often took fire themselves as they passed over. The ones I saw didn't have camouflage paint scheme and I was told they were National Guard.

Treasure that coin until the owner can be found, many of the Pilots lost their lives in Vietnam due to giving close ground support to our boys on the ground. The Pilots knew of the heavy risk before going in there (low level ground support was primary purpose for these planes), and they saved many lives by putting theirs on the line. 242 Super Sabre's lost during the Vietnam War alone.

Well I also sent a message to the Super Sabre Society, so hopefully they respond back and be able to find the owner, (the coin has a date stamped on it so hopefully they keep records). I'm keeping hope that the car was donated for a tax write off rather than a death but you never know. (Fingers crossed)

I was in Vegas last week and saw that Formula......the entire engine cradle/drivetrain/rear suspension were gone and so were a few interior parts, but the rest looked like it was still there. It was definitely worthy of being saved....too bad it wound up in a bone yard. I didn't bring any tools with me or I would have snagged the gauges and a few other things.

Good luck finding the owner of the coin.
