1898 Rough Riders Medal. This 1st US Volunteer Cavalry badge is one of the rarest and most desirable medals of the Spanish American War. The design is pictured on the cover of Roosevelt’s book “The Rough Riders”. I’ve only seen a couple of examples come up for sale in the past 20 years. The last one was in an Al Gleim auction in 1997.
