A sweet conditioned and numbered badge for a local post commander.
This is a fine looking badge with the rank bar indicating a local G.A.R. post commander. The gilt brass medal badge, eagle brooch, and bar have most of the original gilt remaining. The flag/blue silk ribbon shows some fading of color and the slightest bit of wear.
The number is stamped on the edge of the star; “S 444 9.”
No history with this piece, just a fine example.
Pin bar with open catch strong.
