Rare Nypd Honorary Commissioner Badge:
NYPD Honorary Commissioner Badge issued by commissioner Raymond Walter Kelly in 1992. Not sure if Gold plated or gold filled. And I have not tested which one it is. Made by United Insignia, the offical badge makers of the NYPD.
Please note the original owner removed a metal plate (which had his full name written on it) that was glued to the back of the badge in order to remain anonymous. I tried to get the plate but the owner refused to give it up. He did send pictures of the plate to me with the name hidden. Please note, the round metal plate is for photo reference only and not included with the badge as I do not have it in my possession.
The original owner told me that the plate had the original recipiant’s full name with the date issued. The owner also said that the United Insigina stamp was also on the round plate as well. I would also assume that there were other important markings on the round plate as well like if the badge was gold plated or gold filled. If you look closely on the back of the badge, you can see the faint round shape outline the plate has left on the back of the badge. You can also see the badge impression that was left on the round metal plate as well (the NYPD symbol).
Also note that the badge lugs have been broken off because the badge was most likely carried in a flat wallet by the original owner in New York. Please note the various wear on the badge. These honorary badges are extremely rare and only handed out to individuals by the commissioner who have been a tremendous help to the NYPD.
