This is a fine piece of history from a Civil War veteran. It is an original reunion medal of a member of the Grand Army of the Republic. This was the veteran's organization of the Union veterans of the Civil War. In order to become a member of the organization you had to prove that you served honorably for the United States during the war. This is the medal that the veteran would have gotten for attending the 1908 reunion that was held at Toledo, Ohio and is so marked on the bottom medallion. It has a fine original golden ribbon intact on the back with the original attachment pin remaining. Hanging from the beautiful spread wing eagle top bar it has the American flag with "GAR” and "REPRESENTATIVE”. This lets us know it was actually worn by a veteran not just a spectator. The next medallion shows the rowing ship scene with an anchor for the background. The lowest medallion has the image of the soldier in the center with "42nd NATIONAL ENCAMPMENT TOLEDO, OHIO 1908” around the edge. The back of the lower medallion has the Bastian Brothers maker mark form Rochester, New York. It is in excellent displaying shape all the way around. This one is very nice and will enhance any collection.
