The form is right, but the quality and extra detail makes me think it might be a Commander's badge.


I have too much stuff!

 

Revolutionary War through Korea.

 

Lots of field gear, some uniforms and "one or two" medals and a bit of insignia. Plus lots of odds and ends, too many and varied to go into detail here. Just ask and I'll try to help. Who knows? Maybe we can work something out!

The medal is the first edition of the Society of the Army of the Philippines member medal. The organisation only existed from 1899-1913, for service in the Philippine Insurrection. The design was changed after less than a year at the request of President McKinley. This is not a common medal. I've seen one other in person, at the museum I work at.
