There is a small simulated ivory oval emblem. It has a ''1 LEUT.'' fireman helmet carved on it. This was probably on a tie bar or cuff link at one time.
There is a small brass fire hydrant jewelry pin with the back section.
The other (8) items in this lot are all fireman uniform buttons. Two of them are brass with nozzles in the center and marked ''FIRE DEPARTMENT''. The other six (3 brass, 3 silver) have a wreath with ''F.D.'' in the center. One is smaller.
All of these items for one price! To judge the sizes the two cloth patches each measure 4'' wide. These items appear to range from excellent to mint condition. The flicker keychain is dirty and has wear as pictured.
