Description The badge consists of stamped brass bar pin, short length of satin ribbon, and stamped brass pattee cross pendant. The bar pin has a rectangular base with an ornamented crest on top and an open slot on the bottom. "SOUVENIR" is printed in raised letters on the base. A clasp pin is soldered on the back of the bar. The red and white striped ribbon (red on right, white on left) hangs doubled over from the bottom slot and has no marks. The ends of the ribbon taper and gather to a small metal ring. A smaller metal ring passes through this ring and through a top loop of the cross pendant. A diamond-shaped Army of Northern Virginia pattern flag is enameled with a red background and a blue "X" in the center of the cross. The following is printed in raised letters in a circular format around the center, "UNITED CONFEDERATE VETERANS / MOBILE, ALA." Each appendage of the cross has printing in raised characters: "REUNION" on the head, "APRIL" on the left arm, "26-28" on the right arm, and "1910" on the foot. The manufacturer's information is stamped in tiny letters on the back of the pendant and reads, "SCHWAAB S. & S. CO. / MILWAUKEE."
