Badge is surmounted by a large spread-winged eagle over crossed cannons and artillery shells. Reverse has the original pin. Suspended from this top piece is a gold silk ribbon approx. 5.00 inches long.

The top bar has several drops. The first is of brass and is rectangular with a large “GAR” at center with a membership badge superimposed over it. Across the top is a riband that reads “REPRESENTATIVE” with another at bottom that reads “INDIANAPOLIS.”

The second drop is of white metal and shows the state seal of Indiana within a laurel wreath.

The final drop is a bronze circular disc with a bust at center of William A. Ketcham, Commander-in-Chief. During the war Ketcham served as a 2nd Lieutenant and Captain in the 13th Indiana Infantry from 1864-1865 seeing action at Fort Fisher. Reverse of the drop reads “55TH NATIONAL ENCAMPMENT GAR SEPT. 25-29, 1921 INDIANAPOLIS, IND.”

Ribbon has some light surface dirt and stress separation but the rest is excellent.  [ad]
