Like the WWI Cross, it was given for wartime service to descendants of Confederate veterans. This example is numbered on the edge 52. It has some degradation to the finish, as shown in the photos.
The ribbon is an incorrect pattern modern replacement. Ive only had two similar pieces for sale in the past 20+ years. As the medal offered here is unattributed and does not have the original ribbon it is priced accordingly.
