Early San Diego Police badge. Circa 1886.
Circa 1917, the 4th issue badge #8.
Circa 1890 sterling deputy sheriff badge made by Cummings SF.
Circa 1925 sterling deputy sheriff badge.
This badge made by Cal Stamp in San Diego dates back to the days when the police department was headed by the Marshal.
On August 19, 2017 I was happy to let this badge go to the Chula Vista Police Historical Foundation. A great bunch of people preserving the history of their department.
