ARTIFACT: This is an Extremely Rare circa 1855 - 1869 Brooklyn New York Eastern District Fire Dept Helmet Shield Style Badge # 787.

The badge is in exceptional condition for its age. This is for an Active Fireman on the Department at the time. I
Brooklyn FD badges of this Style have been dug at Civil War Battle / Encampment sites, presumably worn by Fire Zouaves Troops. 
I am told the records are still available to identify the original wearer of the badge. 

VINTAGE: Circa 1855 - 1869.

SIZE: Approximately 1-11/16" in height x 1-3/4" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Die Stamped Brass with applied Nickel Numbers.

ATTACHMENT: Vertical kick pin with C catch.


ITEM NOTES: This is from a firefighting badge collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ZDJJM18 LBEGEX02/07/23

CONDITION: 8 (Excellent-): the badge shows very light wear, some of it surely from storage, although there is duty wear as well, and the badge has a lovely patina.        

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