I am trying to identify specifically what this silver badge is. It is not the typical bronze National Association of Veterans of the Mexican War badge. It has a suspension ring at the top, some similar badges have a hole at the top to hang but they aren’t specifically described. Were these privately purchased as a nicer version of the bronze badge? Were they worn only by former officers? I do know the history of the veteran; I am looking for information on the badge itself.
Thanks in advance,
I’m posting this in both the Veterans Organization forum and the Mexican-American War Forum to get more eyes on it.
