$75.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: M25950

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 an oblong plate that reads “REPRESNTATIVE” in enameled red on top boarder, on the bottom “ATLANTIC CITY N.J”, and the center is “G A R” in red, white, and blue enamel. The second hanging medallion is appropriately shaped like a seashell with a yellow and black enameled lighthouse and seascape in the background.  It exhibits a dark brown patina. On the reverse, the medallion is scalloped like a seashell.  The final item is a coin with the image of Major General Philip Kearny.  The outer rim reads (clockwise) “44TH NATIONAL ENCAMPMENT KEARNY SEPTEMBER 19-24 1910”.

A faded yellow ribbon is also suspended from the top bar.  The ribbon is extremely fragile and exhibits signs of fading and fraying.  The badge from top bar to bottom of last coin measures 5 ¾”.

The representative who wore this ribbon was in a commemorative post honoring Major General Philip Kearny.  Kearny had an extensive military record that extended from his service as a dragoon to the Civil War. He was KIA at Chantilly, Virginia and was known for inadvertently breeching Confederate lines at the Second Battle of Bull Run.

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]
