ARTIFACT: This wonderful, beautiful, hand-made 5 point star badge for the Constable of Concord dates to the 1880's or 1890's (possibly earlier), and is quite possibly the FIRST Law Badge used in what is now the City of Concord California. 

The badge was carefully hand cut from heavy sheet nickel, lovingly worked into a slightly convex shape, and boldly stamped in large serifed letters CONSTABLE OF CONCORD. 
The badge has a stunning presence, light wear, and great patina, especially on  back, where the original safety pin affixment is still in place.

VINTAGE: Circa 1880's - 1890's.

SIZE: About 2-3/4" in width by 2-3/4" in height.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Nickel with hand stamped lettering.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal safety-style pin.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a police and law enforcement collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-RONRAEEL11/94 LAAJJX05/05 SLBBIEX07/26/20

CONDITION: 6+ (Fine - Very Fine): The badge has light wear and moderate to heavy patination.

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