    G.A.R. Badges from Southern Departments and Locales.
    Four ribbons (two with celluloid components). These were issued by the Sheridan Post No. 67 in Nashville [Tennessee], the Department of Virginia & N. Carolina post in Portsmouth [Virginia], the Tennessee & Georgia Delegation at the 1888 encampment in Columbus [Ohio] and the Maj. Robert Anderson Post No. 7 in Charleston [South Carolina]. Condition ranges from good to excellent. We've saved the best piece for last. It is an over-the-top ornate ribbon badge that measures 3.75" x 11.75" [overall, fringe included]. It was worn by a veteran who served in the "Department Louisiana [and] Mississippi" and attended the encampment at Indianapolis in 1893. The badge has all the bells & whistles: rosette, eagle hanger, gold metallic-thread trim & tassels, gilt & hand-painted lettering. They even threw in a brass-shell pelican nursing its brood, symbol of Louisiana. A great centerpiece for any G.A.R. collection, with cross-over appeal to Louisiana and Indiana collectors.
    From the Collection of Don Limpert
