Regimental Reunion Ribbons

Like many regimental veterans' associations, the 76th New York's association issued pins and ribbons as souvenirs of their annual reunions. These ribbons were preserved in the families of the veterans, and are relatively common Civil War collectibles to this day. In December, 2001, eBay prices for regimental reunion ribbons varied from $20 to several hundred dollars, depending on the fame of the unit, age and condition. A collection of eight 76th NY ribbons sold for $175 in 2014. GAR ribbons are somewhat less expensive, being more common.
