I found this today at a rummage sale. It was in a box with fishing lures and lighters. It looked cool so I picked it up. It is fairly heavy for its size. It is 2.25" tall x 1.5" wide.

It is obvious it is a DPW supervisor badge, any idea of age would be great

The back had some writing, I took a picture through a Magnifying glass. Mother area is rough from where it was originally soldered .

Would love to learn anything I can about the pin. Not the kind of thing you see every day, so I felt I had to rescue it from the box of junk it was in.

    Nice badge! As a Milwaukee badge collector I can tell you that this is a late 1930's badge. This is the newest version of this title that I have seen. The patent date on the pin base was issued in 1937. The badge is worth 50.00-75.00 in my opinion.

    Manufacturer is most likely Schwaab Stamp and Seal of Milw.
