ARTIFACT: This is a Wonderful Historic circa 1928 Ventura County California Deputy Sheriff Badge # 95 of Maxwell Thayer VP Correspondent Covering the St. Francis Dam Flood. Badge was worn hard, as evident by wear & parred replacement of Catch, and probably had a SPECIAL panel above DEPUTY SHERIFF Originally.

The St. Francis Dam, or the San Francisquito Dam, was a concrete gravity dam located in San Francisquito Canyon in northern Los Angeles County, California, United States, that was built between 1924 and 1926. The dam failed catastrophically in 1928, killing at least 431 people in the subsequent flood, in what is considered to have been one of the worst American civil engineering disasters of the 20th century and the third-greatest loss of life in California history.

VINTAGE: Circa 1928.

SIZE: Approximately: 2-1/2" in height x 1-15/16" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gilt brass with hard fired blue enamel.

ATTACHMENT: Vertical kick pin with replacement of Catch.


MFD BY LARSCO (Manufactured by Los Angeles Rubber Stamp Company)

ITEM NOTES: This is from a police and law enforcement collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBEJK24 LABGEX05/31/24

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The badge shows worn hard, with replacement catch. I wish badge could tell us more stories.
