Ed,

I got these two badges at the Military Show in Mpls.-St Paul,MN. about four years ago from a retired Lt. Col. from Ohio. He comes to the show every year and always has a nice selection of medals and badges.

Hi - Bob. A very attractive badge - as Ed (Hi-Ed) says. The question we need to establish is : 1. Is it a commemmorative item for officers who served at the inauguration - or, is it 2. An identification badge for on-duty officers at the inauguration ?

Mervyn,

I found out more information on the Military Police Inauguration of the President of the United States Badges that I had posted. The person whom I purchased these two badges from said they were only used on the Inauguration Day by MP's at the inauguration.

Bob - well done. That they were used as identity badges during such an important ceremony makes them much more interesting. I wonder how large the contingent was ?

I would suggest you go make through pictures of past inaugurations and see if you can spot the badge being worn - that would go very well with the actual badge. Mervyn
