ARTIFACT: This is a circa 1910's - 1920's Pennsylvania State Police Troop A hat badge from Lehigh County Pennsylvania. 

The badge reads LEHIGH TROOP A and shows the State of Pennsylvania Seal at center and an eagle at top.

This Pennsylvania State Police, which was an Incorporated entity, was similar to the Ohio State Protective Association, and vaguely related to the Horse Thief Detective Associations prolific in the Midwest in the 1st half of the 20th century (and earlier), but it was not actually part of the State Agency, the Pennsylvania State Police. 

It existed primarily to provide private policing and security services in rural areas of the state that were not well canvased by state or local Law Enforcement Agencies.   

VINTAGE: Circa 1910's - 1920's.

SIZE: 1-1/4" in height x 1-5/8" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Nickel-plated nickel with black painted lettering.

ATTACHMENT: Single screw pin with disc backing and stabilizer pin.


ITEM NOTES: This is from a state police collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VADX07 LEGEX4/10 SLCGEX04/06/21

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine-Excellent): Badge shows light wear.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
