The bottom drop consists of a bar with a red, white and blue “GAR” in a wreath flanked by “SEPT. 1899.” At the very bottom is shield with the seal for the city of Philadelphia surmounted by a spread-winged eagle superimposed over crossed enamel colored US and Pennsylvania state flags and the words “33RD NATIONAL ENCAMPMENT.”.
