Universal Canadian Police cap badge
The brimmed forage cap we are all familiar with today saw its introduction in the Early 20th century, c.1907. There were numerous cap badge patterns used by police forces across the Dominion, some with Canadian motifs and some more generic, in the American style. This example would be a classic American style with its laurel sprig surrounding the title Police, Sergeant or Chief. Canadian Police forces often added a crown to the cap to differentiate the style from US counterparts. This polished brass metal badge is partnered with a brass crown with red felt backing. See the attached picture to see how it was worn. A beautiful badge maker marked Scully, circa 1920 - 30s with good aged patina and both of its lugs intact.
