The two-piece suspension badge has a top pin bar device that features a brass bar stamped “SOUVENIR”. Two small circular clips or wire rings suspend the second piece of the badge. This component is a brass shield device 1¼” wide and 1½” high with a two, small crossed Confederate flags in raised-relief.  Year “1916” flanks the flags. Face of the shield above the flags bear the stampeding “REUNION / U. C. V.”  At bottom is “MAY 16-18 / BIRMINHAM, ALA.”  Badge back is plain save for the maker’s name “SCHWAABS & S. CO / Milwaukee”.  An attractive looking badge for any Civil War display or United Confederate Veteran military collection.
