Description

A white metal badge for Henry A. Cassler, Co. G, 3rd Nebraska Volunteer Infantry, 2nd Division Hospital Corps.

A rather harder badge to find relating to hospital corpsman, and medical staff in the Spanish American War. The badge is 3 inches long, all info is stamped on. The lower shield contains a medical cross with “USA” in the center; crossed American and Cuban Flags with wording, “Spanish American War 1898.”

I believe all the Nebraska troops were sent to the Philippines.

Condition is fine, Maker and agent marked on back, Steiner, St. Louis, maker, and Ginger, St Louis, Agent.
