  1. Hi I'm researching the history of the Bow Street Office prior to 1839, particular reference the Runners and Principal Officers and am looking for a suitable tipstaff to illustrate a talk. I would like something 1820 or earlier and have seen some being sold, two described as Victorian and one as Georgian. I have contacted both sites and asked for dating evidence but haven't really had a convincing answer from either. I realise this is a real mine field and would like some more expert advice. The two sites are: jcmilitaria.com items 13495 and 13496, described as Victorian, and michaeldlong.com which has the one described as Georgian. I have 'The Policeman's Lot' and have consulted it and the Georgian one seems to have more of a Victorian crown to my hugely inexpert eye. Any advice greatly received.
