    A forgotten find

    Found this badge out in the " Field of Dreams" a few years ago. Apparentely, one individual owned it. I assume a livery or public service badge. I would think it is one of a kind - as it is stamped. Any thoughts.
    Thank You

    It looks like a pin that either an individual (driver) wore or it was pinned to the harness or bridle on a horse that were in the service of providing Public transportation via a carriage. I would imagine it could date from the mid to late 1800's all the way through the 1940's or later.

    Here is another link with some licensing history and the issuing of medallions which is what you may have. Scroll down to the eighth paragraph for info on these.

    I would imagine that that is not the case but could be wrong. In all likelihood, the horse and/or carriage may have been sold to someone in or around East Windsor and the Pin or Medallion (whichever it is) may have fell off or possibly discarded.
