Original U.S. Military, Law Enforcement and Security Guard Badge Collection - 5 Items

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Lot of 5 Available. A badge is a device or accessory, often containing the insignia of an organization, which is presented or displayed to indicate some feat of service, a special accomplishment, a symbol of authority granted by taking an oath (e.g., police and fire), a sign of legitimate employment or student status, or as a simple means of identification. They are also used in advertising, publicity, and for branding purposes. Police badges date back to medieval times when knights wore a coat of arms representing their allegiances and loyalty.

Badges can be made from metal, plastic, leather, textile, rubber, etc., and they are commonly attached to clothing, bags, footwear, vehicles, home electrical equipment, etc. Textile badges or patches can be either woven or embroidered, and can be attached by gluing, ironing-on, sewing or applique.

Badges have become highly collectable: in the UK, for example, the Badge Collectors' Circle has been in existence since 1980.

The Badges In This Lot:
- Lieutenant Capitol Park Washington DC Special Police Badge: In the Southwest Waterfront area of Washington, D.C. lives a community of townhouses and apartment buildings that were designed by Chloethiel Woodard Smith and Dan Kiley as part of the urban renewal of this area in the 1950’s and 60’s.

- Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Police Patrolman Cap Badge: On March 27, 1911, the pioneer village of Fort Lauderdale, Dade County, with a population of about 250 people, was incorporated as a town. One of the first appointments made by the newly formed council in 1911 was that of Kossie A. Goodbread as first City Marshall at a salary of $40.00 per month and $1.00 for each arrest. Goodbread had been a deputy sheriff of Dade County, covering that portion of Dade from Hallandale to the Caloosahatchee River, which was the Palm Beach County line prior to being appointed as City Marshal. His enforcement equipment was a hand billy, a gun and a padlock. The padlock was to lock boxcars which were utilized as the jail for county prisoners until he could use the one telephone in town at the railway station to call Sheriff Dan Hardee in Miami to come and get the prisoner.

- Security “Special Officer” Badge: This is just a broad “general” security officer badge.

- Suffolk County Sergeant’s Superior Officer’s Association Sponsor Lapel Badge: The Superior Officers Law Enforcement Association is a fraternal beneficiary Association acting as the exclusive majority representative in negotiating for improved wages, hours, working conditions, welfare and job security as well as for all other aspects of collective bargaining, in and on behalf of its members. The Association's mission is the mutual protection and benefit of all its members.

All come more than ready for further research and display.

False representation as a law enforcement officer is completely illegal, no matter the context. An individual who wears police articles of clothing, including uniforms, IDs, patches, or buttons as a form of impersonation can be convicted of this crime as well.
