  • Description: This is a typical U.S. police-type eagle and shield with three-color central panel that reads, "PATROLMAN/CD (in white triangle)/BALTIMORE", on a dark blue background. The badge is silver in color with an original, soldered-on horizontal safety-pin back and a small maker's mark at the tip on the reverse: "BASTIAN BROS/CO/ROCHESTER NY". These badges were intended for police personnel acting under Civil Defense authority in an emergency situation and are a neat Cold War memento. This example is in excellent condition.
