This is a Great Circa 1900 Pinkerton's US Detective Agency 6-Point Star Badge. Originally Worn by Early Venice, California Lawman Walter Mills.
This badge was not issued by the Famous agency founded by Allan Pinkerton; the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, but by a copy-cat agency that played off the famous name, which was eventually sued by Pinkerton National Detective Agency and forced to Cease & Desist.
Approximately 1-7/8" in height x 1-5/8" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Nickel-plated brass with black painted lettering
Vertical safety-style pin.
This is from a Private Investigator & Detective Agency collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-RLB-VGJJX05/01-20 LAGGEX06/03/20
8- (Very Fine-Excellent): The badge shows moderate wear, overall very fine condition.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
