A fancier membership for this department commander with blue cut stones at the points of the star.
G.A.R. Department Commanders Membership Badge is un-numbered. This untouched badge has nearly all of the original gilt, with an aged patina over the entire surface.
The points of the stars have blue stones, most likely glass which enhance the badge and the long double flag ribbon. The eagle pin brooch hold the department commander bar with links of chain, and more chain extensions hold the star. The height of the badge is 5 3/4 inches.
The makers name appears on the rank bar, “J.K. Davison, Phila.”
Soiling to ribbon along with some fading, but overall a nice badge in fine condition. No history with this one.
