 You are bidding on an original Eastland Disaster Coroners badge. I have done some research on the the badge and the disaster (Google. E-Bay, Eastland Society). This badge was presented to my  grandfather from the Cook County Coroner Peter M. Hoffman for assisting the coroners office at the disaster site.. Peter M. Hoffman is a story in itself which I will get back to later.I'm told there were approx. 200 of these original badges given out to various people and only 20 to 30 have been accounted for, which makes it that much more desirable and collectible.The badge is in pristine condition which can be seen in the pictures since it was never really worn on a daily basis. It was displayed but not abused.It is also almost 100 years old. Peter M.Hoffman was the Cook County Coroner and he was also  the Cook County Sheriff and that's when  he got involved with some type of Chicago corruption. If you Google his name and Des Plaines IL.you can read the whole story. If you have any questions please ask before you bid  .GOOD LUCK & HAPPY BIDDING !!!!!!!!!!
