EXTREMELY HAPPY I was able to make a trade for these 4 FD badges, two of which are Paterson badges/medals, it's an early Christmas present to myself. The 3 gold suspension badges are ones that world renowned FD collector Jim Piatti had showed me while I was at his house, but we didn't come to an agreement on them as I was doing research on Bakelaar and Borneman to make sure these were actually Paterson badges. By the time I got back to him they had already sold, AND as it turns out, both the Bakelaar and Borneman were PASSAIC NJ firefighters.

The Engine #3 badge is one I already have, but mine has a different style #3 than the one on the left. Once I have them together I will decide which one to keep and which one to pass along to another collector. I got extremely lucky buying a group of Very Early Clifton FD badges, 4 of which were gold, so the trade was able to be made, both of us are very happy with what we ended up with.

The blue enamel on the Passaic #1 badge will be repaired.
