This all-volunteer force has been around protecting Royal Oak for over 100 Years. Interesting history here https://www.romi.gov/1276/History-A-Century-of-Service
This is a very rare find made in the 1950s as part of the Japanese rebuilding project General Macarthur ran.
My mother and I bought the remaining supply of these 15 years ago or so and can't believe I found these in a box unsold still. My mom still amazes me two years after her passing as she must have found more or hid these away because I remember us selling out of so many of these in 2007.
Be careful as I have seen a lot of listing using this card with a random badge attached that isn't the correct badge type this company made. It's very obvious also as the badges they affix to the card are so much bigger than the card and cover the words and pictures which no company would ever do.
The Vintage Tin Litho Special Police Badge Royal Oak Auxiliary MI 1950s is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
