Posted By: <b>andypcl</b><p>I'm finally posting this one in an attempt to learn a little about it's origin and how many there may be out there. Someone told me a long time ago that it was given to a group going to Hawaii for a golf tournament that Mays was part of. It's issued by a button company with a code on it so I assumed it was a sample of a design that Green Duck manufactured. I only know of one other that resides in Florida. Any help would be appreciated. <br /><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z228/andypcl/mlmaysaloha-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><br /><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z228/andypcl/mlmaysaloha2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a>

Posted By: <b>andy</b><p>Hi Paul,<br /><br />I've always thought that ASI 5814 probably was a catalogue number referring to a certain style of button that could be ordered from Green Duck. Lithello was a product that the Green Duck brochures at the time (around 72') advertised as a litho button with a cello like coating. I'm thinking this was a sort of sales sample of some kind.<br />-Andy<br /><br />
