This Delegate Badge was made for Members of the Massachusetts Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) who were delegates and attending the Boston reunion.

The MASS state seal has been expertly cut into the face, with white and blue enamel to highlite the brass base.

The Boston pin has red enamel work.

This a desirable pin back from the early days of the GAR.
