The top bar of this badge is shaped like the front portico of the Capitol building in Boston. This is flanked by two medallions, one bears the Massachusetts state seal and the other bears the seal of the city of Boston. Connecting the two is a riband that reads “BOSTON 1904.’

The badge has a central medallion with an oval laurel wreath with an entwined red, white and blue “GAR” and a blue enameled riband with gold lettering that reads “REPRESENTATIVE.”

The bottom drop is a panoply of US flags with a riband at center which reads “38th NATIONAL ENCAMPMENT GAR.” At center is a copper or bronze disc with a bust of the National Commander John C. Black who was a Medal of Honor recipient during the war. He saw service with the 11th Indiana and 37th Illinois regiments.

Suspended from the bar behind the badge pieces is a gold ribbon.

Light surface dirt throughout but still very nice.   [ad]
