    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.

      I to have several friends that are fire fighters. It is a dangerous job! My nieces husband is trying to be a full time fire fighter. I pray he is safe for they have two small children. Children need both parents. Anyway thank you for your comment and have a great day Toyman!

      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.
