This is a very nice condition representative badge for the 63rd annual encampment of the Pennsylvania Department of the G.A.R., held at Gettysburg in 1929 with that information in raised letters on the reverse of the medal and a portrait of Department Commander George I. Rudolph on the obverse. The upper pinback bar features the G.A.R. seal with oak leaves and the suspension bar has a floral scroll upper and lower border with “representative” in raised letters. The metal is a deep bronze. The ribbon is red, indicating a department level badge.

The condition is excellent. The very early and the later badges like this are particularly scarce due to membership levels at the time. By the end of 1929 there were only about 21,000 members left in the G.A.R. as a whole. Rudolph had served in the 87th Pennsylvania.  [sr] [ph:L]
