Here you have a 1935 Spanish War Veterans 36th Annual Encampment for the State of Massachusetts. The Span Am reunion was held at New Bedford. Whitehead and Hoag crafted the medal. It is intact and in excellent condition.

The medal is intricately designed. It depicts the famous sea port of New Bedford, Massachusetts. There is a light house, sailing ships, and a coastline. All the information is in concurrent circumferences around the center.

The pin mount is also intricately designed. It features the cross logo of the Spanish American War. In the center is the depiction of a soldier and sailor. Embosses on the points of the Cross are; Cuba, Porto Rico (spelling of the day), USA, and Philippine Islands. There is an early pin back mechanism on the reverse with needle and catch.

The gold patina of the cross and medal are still bright and clean. The red and gold ribbon has soiled a bit with the passage of 78 years, and there is some fraying and tears to the lower part of the ribbon. The ribbon's colors are in the Spanish royal colors.

The meal measures 3.75 by 1.375 inches. The medal is non-magnetic. It is marked on the reverse on the pin mount and medal.
