HRC Prototypes

horizontal rule

Whenever Hard Rock Corporate creates a new pin design, they will usually create 4 or 5 different styles or color variations of the pin before they decide which one they want to mass produce.  Typically there are fewer than 10 of each variation made and many times there are fewer than 5 of each variation.  Prototype's are EXTREMELY rare and very very very hard to come by.  I guarantee the authenticity of all of my prototype pins below, they are authentic Hard Rock Cafe Prototypes, a few of them are "Concept" pins.  This means that they were never mass produced (in any variation) and are TRUE Prototypes.  These pins are also the most valuable and the very hardest to come by, thus they cost a little more.
