officialfuel
(369 items)

I went to an auction today and there was some outstanding firemans memorabilla. I happen to get this one item and thought I would share with CollectorsWeekly. There are nine items in this glass showcase. The years range anywhere from 1887 to 1914. I guess out of the nine items the Indian medal would be my favorite. It's dated Oct. 6-9, 1908. I'm just glad I got to come home with a little bit of history of the awards and medals the fireman got to wear. Hope you enjoy.

    officialfuel, there seems to be no limits of categories you collect! And you always seem to go with the best quality. I just sold a 1880's firemans ribbon from Lead SD about 4 months ago. FYI I got about $250.00 for it.
