    Victorian POlice Pistol and Jubilee Medals

    Brian Wolfe

    In the mid 1800’s the Metropolitan London Police were issued both firearms and swords when the need arose, such as in times of civil unrest. The pistol shown was most likely made in Birmingham in the 1840’s and was commonly known as a “man-stopper” with its 20mm-wide bore.

    The medals shown are the 1887 Jubilee and the 1887 with 1897 bar which was issued to officers who had already received the 1887 Jubilee medal. There is also a separate medal for the 1897 Jubilee for those who had not received the 1887 medal, however it has the same obverse as the ones show so I didn’t include it here.
