Rare original, Tiffany made, Civil War era, Long Service Medal of the 22nd Regiment of the New York National Guard. Measures approximately 1 1/2 across. Heavy tarnish and some wear.
The original ribbon is in poor condition, soiled, tattered and ripped through so it is no longer fastened to the medal or the brooch. Original suspension, "Defendam" (the motto of the Regiment adopted in 1863). Marked to Tiffany & Co on the reverse of the brooch. This is a hobby not a living, so I try to keep it fun, otherwise why do it.
