The item is brass cut. The top bar has a clasp with an eagle grasping two cross cannons over the word “REPRESENTATIVE”.  Suspended from the top bar is a star shaped medallion with clovers on the five points. In the center is an image of Ulysses Grant framed in the words ‘CINCINNATI, OHIO’ on the top and very faint, under an image of a log cabin, reads ‘BIRTHPLACE/ AT POINT/ PLEASANT.’ A coin hangs from the star and has a portrait of Edwin J Foster, and along the bottom reads ‘COMMANDER IN CHIEF.’

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

Edwin J. Foster enlisted in June 1864 with Company E, 40th Wisconsin Infantry, and mustered out in September 1864.  He was GAR Commander-In-Chief in 1929.

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