1863-1893 New York Monument Dedication medal


Recommended Posts

My guess is that this piece is a marriage of a pendant without a ribbon and a ribbon without a pendant. It is weren't for the metal for the top and bottom being different, I might not have known it didn't originate like this.

 

Can you provide a closer view of the suspension bar?

Sorry for not being more clear. The bar with the stylized letters is what I would like to see in more detail. The first photos you supplied were good. I just could not zoom in enough to positively make out what letters were on it.

I agree with that assessment. While it looks nice to the unknowing bystander, to someone who prefers items in their original condition, I would break apart the marriage and treat them as separate pieces.

 

I was told by someone who has a Gettysburg medals page that this may most likely have been a veteran who was also an OES member. I prefer to leave things as I find them and let the next person break them apart. But thanks for your help.

but if asked, I'd say that its NOT original veteran piece but a marriage of two parts with no real connection to a vet.. and I'd value it more for the medal without the drape on it.... no deceit on my part ever as to any association ...
