The badges are from the 1930's through the early70's. Police, fire police and fire department badges. Pretty run of the mill badges except one. They were all issued to my father in law. Top row last badge to the right is the badge he was wearing in Lakehurst, NJ as he was fighting the fire the night the Hindenburg crashed. I wonder how many such badges still exist? For you doubting Thomas's the makers mark on back is consistent with the 1930's and fire department records are also. I thought I would post it for it's historical value.
