Quantrill Reunion Medallion

© MPR Virtual Museum Collection

This is a very rare medallion, and it's origins and makers are unknown. May well indeed have been initially a special or anniversary issue for one or more of Quantrill's reunions. As there are many surviving images showing this medallion adorning the top part of the ribbons (pinning the ribbon to the jacket) which were issued at each reunion.

Probably of circa 1899 - 1908 vintage.

The medallion is constructed of a solid brass bar, medal back and chain. Sepia tone, celluloid photographic insert of Captain William Clarke Quantrill. Pin clasp on reverse of bar.

Measures 2 7/8 inch by 1 5/8 inch.
