Group or no group, but the price is definitely a mad one ($1500?! :speechless1: )

Somebody needs to explain that price to me. Something rare there in the papers and documents perhaps?

Gents, another variation for you.  I can't find another image of this type on the internet. 

Anyone else seen one with the swords this way round?

I thought that at first, but the text on the back is the right way up? So only the front is upside down...

Yep, you`re right.

Hello everyone,

About this matter, police and fire fighter brigade..

Badge bought for me by a friend this W.End on a second hand market with unidentified hand-written text and date on the inside lid of box.

This badge seems to be from Showa era (police or fire fighter department ???)

Any answer (in particular in translation of text and name)  would be greatly appreciated 

Patout

Thank Brian for this friendly remark.

This site is a gold mine for collectors, it's a store always open with always a present seller (in particular Nick) to advise and help you....

The answers are always appropriate and detailed

Thanks to all

Regards

Patout
