Extremely Rare - C. 1870's - 1917 Nypd Police Collection Lot 2:
Selling my collections after more than 30 years. Offered at this time, are EXTREMELY RARE U.S. police memorabilia mainly from the NEW YORK POLICE DEPARTMENT, some MUNICIPAL. Many items offered would only be found in the best private collections, or museums and, if passed upon at this time, may never be seen again.These items, which I had collected while in the law enforcement community, are some of the items, remaining in my collection, as many of the pieces were previously donated to the Nat'l Law Enforcement Museum soon to open in Washington D.C.
UNFORTUNATELY these and following items were recently offered to the NLEM, but were declined due to financial constraints, and thus being offered for the first time to the general public.
