Antique B&O Railroad Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Obsolete Police Captain Badge
Antique circa late 1800's obsolete Baltimore & Ohio Railroad police captain badge. Features a T style pin with original hook clasp. Top is testing 800 silver using x-ray analysis of the metal, however, I do see some minor greening which indicates it is most likely a heavy plate. I cannot do further testing to the front of the badge without damaging the piece and I did not want to clean the item. Back is testing silver plate with mixed metals. Hollow body two part design with a seem soldier along the sides. The piece is unsigned.
Captain is enameled black with some enamel damage and loss. Unpolished and very tarnished. Badge measures approximately 2 5/8" high and 2 1/4" wide. As one would expect from an antique item, this piece shows appropriate wear and tear for its age.
