I recently obtained this ribbon bar representing the Civil War (left ribbon) and the China Relief Campaign, (Navy design, right). It's an old pin-back, with the ribbons sewn. I can not identify the ribbon in the middle. It's not the Loyal Legion or the original Navy GCM, and it's not the Ordnance Association. I've looked at probably a hundred state and fraternal medals to no avail.

I'm wondering if it's one of the degrees of the Military Order of the Serpent (MOS).

Colors are (l to r) black, yellow, red.


Apparently there was an article in the OMSA journal not too long ago on the different MOS's but I haven't seen it.
