This is a Malta Jewel, for this particular Commandery. Not all the Cmdy’s used the standard Type Jewel, that we are use to seeing. IE; the one a lot of people mistake for a GAR Death Badge, (It most defiantly isn’t)
FYI. I have found two of these badges. One with a number on it and one without. The one without is very rare. My thanks goes to Everitt Bowles of Woodstock GA.
Of other note Jeff Floyd could you please e-mail directly email@example.com I wish to ask you something.
Why is there not information ABOUT THIS YEARS CONVENTION YET!

Drain, What are you asking? About LA Fratenal? That’s one several companies that you can buy brand new Malta Jewel from today. They have a web site. That has a catalog that shows a photo of the Malta jewel.
I have finally gotten E-bay to agree to stop allowing the listing the Malta Jewel as the GAR DEATH BADGE. We’ll see if they follow thru with it or not.
Here is a link to a great article written by George Kane for the Veteran in 2009.
I recommend all the OMSA members read it. It will give you some great insight on
a very miss under stood badge.
