This is from the 1880's to 1900 and was a 7th Inf. NY NG Long Service Medal that was polished and re-engraved into a medal for Valor. Have no other information on it. I just received information from a friend today 10/29, that it is not a long service medal for the NY 7th Inf. At this point, all I can say is, "it is what it is" unless someone else can ID it.
