Rare and possibly unique Rifle Marksman silver “target” badge awarded in 1879 to New York State National Guard 4th Regiment (also called the 14th Brooklyn Chasseurs) , A company team. Silver planks “ladder” construction the “target” made of hot-applied black enamel. This is a quality-made square badge with the original “crossed muskets” pin-on suspension. This specimen was awarded to the A Company team member Jas M. Robertson – the name and the regiment/company number are hand-engraved on the back. The main badge part is about 32.3 mm diameter, about 2.5 mm thick; the total length of this ladder badge is about 64 mm / 2-1/2 inches; total weight is about 0.59 oz / 16.7 grams.
