White metal badge consists of two portions, a top bar and a drop.

The top bar is plain except for a scroll decoration at top center and a laurel leaf in each corner. The silver plating has rubbed off on some portions of the bar. Reverse still has the original pin and catch.

The drop is suspended from the bar by two small lengths of chain. Drop is circular with a recessed blue shield at center with a silver anchor. This insignia represents the Colonel’s home state of Rhode Island. Around the edge of the drop in blue letters is “IN MEMORY OF COL. H. H. YOUNG U.S.V.” The edge of the drop has an engraved decoration and a blue trapezoid at top.

Reverse of the medal is blank but does have numerous scratches and some surface wear.

An online biography of Colonel Young reads as follows:

“Henry Harrison Young (1841–1866) was from Pawtucket, Rhode Island. As a Union major, he served in the 2nd Rhode Island Volunteer Infantry regiment from 1861 to 1865. He was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel of Volunteers in 1865 and served as the Chief of Scouts to General Philip H. Sheridan. He commanded a 58-man scout band, popularly called the "Jessie Scouts", under General Sheridan in the final months of the war. He was mysteriously killed in 1866 during a military expedition in Mexico. The Scout statue was erected in his honor at the Kennedy Plaza in downtown Providence, Rhode Island.”   [ad]
