Extremely Rare - C. 1880's - 1911 Nypd Police Collection Lot 3:
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.
OFFERED ARE EXTREMELY RARE EARLY c. 1880's to 1918 PERIOD MEMORIBILIA. MUCH SOUGHT AFTER, AND IN VERY GOOD CONDITION FOR BEING OVER 100 YEARS OLD. THESE ITEMS ''ARE RARE''. MANY ACTUALLY PURCHASED FROM POLICE MUSEUMS, AND COLLECTORS WHOSE COLLECTIONS OUTRANK MY OWN 10X's OVER. IF YOU LET THESE PASS FOR YOUR COLLECTION, YOU'LL CERTAINLY REGRET LETTING THEM GET AWAY.
