State of Washington SAW Service Medal
Original dark bronze 39mm maltese cross State of Washington service medal for officers and men who served in the Philippines, 1898-99. Not named as is most common for this particular medal. It was issued in 1910 but made available for only active duty soldiers, "so this may account for the relative scarcity of this medal", Doug Boyce State Medals for War Service. The RWB ribbon appears to be original and does have repairs to it.
