This auction is for an all original DSR Detroit MICH pin ID badge. The pin number is 10831. Everything seems to work fine on the back. It is about 2 1/2 inches across and 1 3/4 inches tall. The back says Metal Arts Co. Inc. Rochester NY. This is a fantastic old driver's hat badge for the Detroit Department of Street Railways, which operated trolley cars and buses as well, from the turn of the last century up until about 1974. It is made of silver colored metal with wings at the top and the letters DSR and badge number in red and white enamel. Reverse has a screw-on style back. Badge is in excellent condition; a little light tarnish and wear, enamel is intact with no cracks or chips; great item for any bus or trolley car collector. I am unsure of when this was made, but I believe it is from the 1920's to 1930's with the other badges I have up for auction seeming to be from the same timeframe.
You may want to take a look at my other auction listings for there may be something else of interest to you. They include the Lionel ST301 Sevice Station Wheel Puller, other old train items, badges, dolls, banks, beer signs, radios, and other stuff. If you win the ST301 Service Station Wheel Puller and the ST-350 Rivet Set auctions I will combine shipping at no additional cost. I have five other badges up for auction. Regardless of the number of badges you win shipping will be a flat $5.00.
