ITEM NOTES: This is from a firefighter badge collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJJP20 LCGEX02/17/21
CONDITION: 6+(Fine): Overall condition is good, with little wear, but the chemical makeup of the white metal did not allow the silver plating to adhere well, so it is gone from most of the badge except for findings.
