Original U.S. Police and Airline Pilot Visor Cap Set - Formerly Part the Tower of London Yeoman Warders Club Collection - 5 Items

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Lot of 5 Available. IMA recently acquired a collection of headgear from the Yeoman Warders (aka “Beefeaters”) Club located at the Tower of London. The club has a strict policy of allowing only members of the Yeoman Warders and their guests entry. It has become a tradition over the years for visiting guests with any current or prior military or police service to leave one of their pieces of headgear. Over the years this collection has grown too large, leaving the Warders to liquidate the collection to IMA! Making this a truly exclusive offering!
 
The Visor Hats Included it this Lot are:

- Florida Police Department: This visor appears to be from the 1960s / 1970s and is brown in color. This visor is able to be adjusted for the sizes ranging from 7 to 7 ¼ and is a base size of medium. The visor badge features the older crest of the Florida Police Departments and features the rank of Major in blue enamel and brass across the face.

- South Windsor Police Department, Connecticut: This beautiful visor belonged to Police Officer Thomas J. Windsor who left his business card inside the visor, as well as a beautiful South Windsor Police uniform shoulder patch. The visor is size 7 ⅛.

- St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, Missouri: This visor we believe belonged to a Sergeant within the Police Department because of the 0002 collar number featured on the visor crest. The visor is size adjustable from 7 to 7 ¼ with a base size of a medium. The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Division (also known as the SLMPD or Metro) is the primary law enforcement agency for the U.S. city of St. Louis. According to the Mapping Police Violence dataset, SLMPD has the highest police use of deadly force per capita. The SLMPD union has strongly resisted attempts to establish independent oversight of police misconduct.

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.

- American Airlines Pilot Visor Cap: This beautiful 7 ⅜ visor belonged to Captain S. King Graham, his business card is inside the cover. American Airlines was started in 1930 via a union of more than eighty small airlines. The two organizations from which American Airlines originated were Robertson Aircraft Corporation and Colonial Air Transport. The former was first created in Missouri in 1921, with both being merged in 1929 into holding company The Aviation Corporation. This, in turn, was made in 1930 into an operating company and rebranded as American Airways. In 1934, when new laws and attrition of mail contracts forced many airlines to reorganize, the corporation redid its routes into a connected system and was renamed American Airlines. Between 1970 and 2000, the company grew into being an international carrier, purchasing Trans World Airlines in 2001.

- Delta Airline Pilot Visor Cap: The visor belonged to a pilot for Delta Airlines, unfortunately we cannot read the name written on the inside. The size is approximately 7 ⅜.Delta Air Lines, Inc., typically referred to as Delta, is one of the major airlines of the United States and a legacy carrier. One of the world's oldest airlines in operation, Delta is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. The airline, along with its subsidiaries and regional affiliates, including Delta Connection, operates over 5,400 flights daily and serves 325 destinations in 52 countries on six continents. Delta is a founding member of the SkyTeam airline alliance.

Delta has nine hubs, with Atlanta being its largest in terms of total passengers and number of departures. It is ranked second among the world's largest airlines by number of scheduled passengers carried, revenue passenger-kilometers flown, and fleet size. It is ranked 69th on the Fortune 500. The company slogan is "Keep Climbing."

Under the measure, impersonation of a pilot, airline or airport employee or contractor in restricted areas of airports is a felony punishable by one to three years in prison.
