This is a great old Nickel plated Nickel badge, with full
ball tips, produced for supplier Detective Publishing Company, showing the
company's earlier logo, which mimicked the actual manufacturer's logo of C. H.
Hanson. The badge is in what I call the Eastlake style, which was popular in
the 1870's and 1880's and originated with famed Old West badge producers Tower
Codington County was part of the Dakota Territory until it
became part of South Dakota in 1889, so this badge could easily be Territorial.
The eastern South Dakota county was active by the 1870's,
but sparsely populated.
The badge is typically sized at 2-5/8" in height x 2-5/16" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Nickel plated Nickel.
Vertical kick pin with tongue-type 'C' catch
This is from a Police Badge collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. PBAEM21 LBBGEX06/08/22
8 (Excellent): This badge has a great old look. The original wire C catch was replaced during the period of wear with a tongue type C catch, probably circa 1900.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
