This is the United Daughters of the Confederacy Cross of Military Service for the Spanish American War. This cross is numbered 477 on the lower edge. This CMS is not attributed to a specific service member (yet), but I continue to search through old UDC records.
Records seem to indicate that only 800 of these medals were ever manufactured, but even that information is sketchy. This particular medal came from the Lee Bishop Collection, who wrote the definitive work on Society Medals.
If I do discover the name of the recipient, the price will definitely go up. This is a piece worth researching, and a valuable addition to any collection.
