Fraternal Society Memoriam Ribbon Badge, ca. 1900
c.1900-1910 Fraternal Ribbon Badge - Double-Sided Reversible Mourning / Memoriam Badge for the Junior Order of United American Mechanics (O.U.A.M.)--Nathan Hale Council, No. 172, of North Lawrence, Ohio.
A fairly large pin, 2.5 inches across; 8" to the bottom of the ribbon, plus an extra 1.25" of sprightly fringe. The 3-color (regular ceremonial) side of the badge has some splitting and is a bit fragile, but the black (mourning) side is in excellent condition and the metallic coil fringe is still in nice shape.
