Question RE Veterans Corps Badge

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Saw this for sale on the horse soldier. Is there a specific name for this kind of corps badge? And are there any publications that say anything about it? Seller is asking 460$ but I haven’t found any others to compare to

 

Thanks in advance,

Kyle I don’t know of any specific name for this style of corps badge. If there were a name I think the folks at “The Horse Soldier “ would have included it in there description. I’ve dealt with the Small family for many years , they have handled many badges and I consider them very knowledgeable. I also checked “Civil War Corps Badges and Other Related Awards” by Stanley Philips and did not find this badge mentioned.   Mike

The Eagle and "U.S.A" have a very late 19th/ early 20th century look to them, so probably a reunion/ GAR event item from that time period.
