New York National Guard regimental Rifle Marksman silver badge awarded to NGSNY 14th Regiment (also called the 14th Brooklyn Chasseurs). VERY rare 1877-1878-1879 “ladder type” in excellent overall condition, considering the age.
Rare and possibly unique Rifle Marksman silver “ladder badge” awarded to New York State National Guard 4th Regiment (also called the 14th Brooklyn Chasseurs) in the 1870th. Silver planks “ladder” construction the “target” made of hot-applied black enamel. This is a quality-made square badge with 3 “add-on” yearly bars on a pin-on suspension; looks like 14th Regiment has won the rifle competition for 3 consecutive years from 1877 to 1879. This specimen was awarded to the regimental team member Jas M. Robertson – the name and the regiment number are hand-engraved on the back. The main badge part is about 33.8 mm by 32.8 in diameter, about 1.1 mm thick; the total length of this ladder badge is about 102 mm / 3-15/16 inches; total weight is about 0.91 oz / 25.8 grams. This rare shooting award is 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.
Very attractive specimen with original light-gray patina and fantastic eye appeal. Not cleaned or tempered with; these are the actual photos. This original and possibly unique New York National Guard regimental Rifle Marksman silver badge is guaranteed to be genuine or your money back.
