$75.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: M25973

The item is brass cut. The top bar has a clasp with an eagle grasping two cross cannons.  In the eagle’s talons is a saber.  The top piece show signs of oxidation.  Suspended from the eagle is a plate that reads “G A R” in red, white, and blue enamel. The word “REPRESENTATIVE” is underneath. The second hanging medallion has the Minnesota capitol building etched in the background and on one side of the image reads “ST. PAUL” and the other “1933”. A scroll-like ribbon borders the bottom with the words “67th NATIONAL” and “ENCAMPMENT” etched on the ribbon.  In the center of the ribbon, nestled on a star, is the GAR official seal.  The third, and final, medallion has the image of William P. Wright carved on the front.  On the reverse reads, “DIED IN OFFICE/ JUNE 15TH 1933” and is encircled with laurel branches tied with a bow in the center.

A faded yellow ribbon is also suspended from the second bar.  The ribbon is extremely fragile and exhibits signs of fading.  The badge from top bar to ribbon bottom measures 5 ½”.

William P. Wright enlisted in Napierville, Illinois with Company I, 132nd Illinois Infantry, then in 1864 mustered in with Company D, 156th Illinois Infantry.  He was as an active member of MOLLUS.

This a unique, intricate addition to any collector who wants to preserve the legacy of past Union service members via the GAR.  [MK] [ph:L]
