I was there. I programmed and assisted in the start-up of the plating equipment that electroplated the first blanks at the Greenville, TN facility. To the best of my knowledge there were 100 Jars made and filled with the first blanks off from the NAPCO machines to commemorate the event. I have 2 of them.

They are extremely rare.  There were only a very few of the special jars made for the managers and plant personnel directly involved in the start up.  I have one full of penny blanks also and personally observed the manufacture of the first blanks that are in them.   The jars were produced as a thank you to those involved.
