Franklin Trek 1978 Item Information Sought

Recommended Posts

Just purchased this online and before it arrives I thought I'd ask here if anyone knows what it is? Supposed to be 8 inches tall and seller said it was from 1978 trek of H.H. Franklin Club but knew nothing else. Is it a souvenir given to all participants, a trophy or a fund raiser that was purchased?

It is a memento of the 25th Trek,  5.5" high. The same thing was done in copper for the 10th Trek.

Thanks for the responses guys, I appreciate the help. Any guess of roughly how many would have been made for a trek back then?

If there were 150 people registered for that trek then perhaps 175-200 were produced.

Every person who attended did not get one, there would have been one per family , ie if Dad registered and brought along

his wife and 12 kids, they would have only received the one souvenir. If I recall the molds for the 10th trek souvenir were located,

and reworked to note the 25th trek information.

I will have one of these, like you just bought for sale at my spaces at Hershey (Red Field RNG 10-11 ) as well a a good selection of

Franklin instruction books/owners manuals for the series 10 thru 17.
