Engraving on back reads, "Presented to HB Jack Wallace by members of the Hollywood Police Division and Friends,
from Nov. 29, 1904 to Feb 9, 1925".
Incredibly rare, original Los Angeles Police Department badge #7, worn by Hollywood Police Division Lieutenant H.B. "Jack" Wallace, who served from 1904 to 1925. A motorcycle patrolman early on, Wallace lost a partner during a high-speed pursuit in 1910. Accompanying this badge (which comes in its original leather pouch) is Wallace's 14k gold retirement badge, set with two very nice diamonds, a sapphire and a ruby in the front. This full-sized, solid gold badge weighs 93.1 grams, right at 3 Troy oz.
