Not in this case, though. What appeared to be just another damaged item, turned out to be not that! Why on earth did someone glue that coin there, thus damaging both pieces? Could it be removed and at least salvage the main piece? The coin was obviously a goner. Answers to these questions became clear as the investigative work continued.. What did the engraving mean? Maybe the seller could shed some light? Could Google help? Turns out it could! First, seller provided name and little history. Turns out this is not a damaged piece. This is an award, a golfing award, from the 1970's. The coin is supposed to be glued there. Why? This is not just any award -There's more, the award was given to someone who made friends with...the King of Belgium. Makes sense that a coin depicting the King would be attached to the award. With the help of Google, some information arised. As related by book author, Curtis Benton: The team the author is referring to is the American Seniors Golf Association. Next in the book there's some information about him and even mention of the small award. The award is described to be slightly different, since the story takes place in 1976, 3 years later than the date inscribed on award. Is it a plate presented to every member of team, or an award given to the winner? That remains unknown even though the first option is most likely. The story doesn't end here. This won't serve the purpose it was bought for. No candy or nuts to go in this. Not a small tray or a dish. This needs to stay as is, not have the coin removed as first intended. It must go into a collection of someone who will cherish it and its story for years to come! Excerpts from Golf: Playing with Some Great Pros and Many Great Guys By Curtis D. Benton, Jr.
