Creedmoor 1880 Rifle Match silver award presented to New York State National Guard 23rd Regiment; original blue silk ribbon. VERY rare type in excellent condition, considering the age.
Rare and possibly unique Creedmoor range (was located on Long Island in New York State) Rifle Match silver award badge awarded in 1880 to New York State National Guard 23rd Regiment . Silver planks “ladder” construction the “target” and lettering made of hot-applied black enamel. This is a quality-made square badge with the “add-on” yearly bar on a pin-on suspension. The badge was made by Richard Oliver jewelry company located in Bloomfield, NY circa 1870 – late 1880th (the back side is stamped R. OLIVER). The regiment’s number is hand-engraved on the back. The main badge part is about 28.4 mm by 32.2 mm; it’s about 0.85 mm thick; the total weight is about 0.425 oz / 12 grams. This rare shooting award is a part of an old-time collection from a NJ-based gentleman which I recently purchased; I have about 20 various US badges, pins, and awards to list, some are pretty rare.
