I recently started researching my Great Great Grandfather's (Joseph Baker Comer) American Civil War record. I was surprised to find that a collector happened to own his medal.
I emailed him to ask if it would be possible to get a couple of photos of the medal.
Much to my surprise and pleasure, he offered to sell the medal to me at a good price. I was able to put the money together and the medal is winging its way to me.
These are photos of the medal sent to me by him. I will post my own photos when the medal arrives.
