Now that I look at it, I think it may well be the 9th New York monument
badge. That monument was dedicated on May 28, 1897, but I can imagine
that they may have made the badge in anticipation of it being dedicated
the previous fall. Anyway, if anyone has any other info I would love to
hear it. Thanks.
