Spanish War Service Medal 1898-99, Army issue (16625) with full wrap brooch, ribbon a little frayed, good very fine £50-70


Medal number 16625 was issued on 19 December 1925 to Wagoner Harvey McCarley, Company D, 2nd Alabama Infantry Volunteers. These notes supplied in a letter from A. F. Gleim who states that the medal was one of the last issued from the Washington Quartermaster Stores in 1925, before the transfer of that function to Philadelphia and was thus one of the highest numbers attributable with current known records.
