ARTIFACT: Scarce 1973 Commemorative Issue 1901-1904 Mounties Hat Badge with a great applied Gaunt of London maker mark on the reverse! This badge commemorates the original badges worn by the first incarnation of the Canadian police (North West Mounted Police). Dating back to the period following Queen Victoria's death, the original badge was only in use from about February 1901 until King Edward VII bestowed the title "Royal" upon the Mounties some time in 1904. This 1973 example shows a bison at center and reads "Maintien le Droit" (Maintain the Right / Defend the Law).

SIZE: Approximately 1-3/4" in height x 1-5/8" in width.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a Great Britain and Commonwealth law enforcement badge collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MCJX14 LGGEX7/14 SLAAEX05/17 SAAEX05/27/18
