This is a great circa 1900 New Orleans Police Special Officer Badge. This is basically the equivalent of a "Special Police" badge. This is an early style nickel plated nickel badge with a one piece pin. It's a simple circle star badge, but has a great look to it.
More ornate examples of this badge, soe in silver and even gold, are more "Honorary", "Juice", or Presentation badges.
Size 1-3/4" in diameter.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Nickel plated Nickel.
Vertical safety type pin with open C type catch.
This is from a Police Badge collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. TRVAJJX TRBJX17 LBFEX5/17
7 (Very Fine): The badge has a nice patina.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
