First N. Y. State Hunting Guide License Badge, 1919 - 1923
Item History and Pricing
This is the first NY State Guide license badge issued from 1919-1923 when licensing was voluntary, In 1924 the state went to mandatory Guide licensing and began issuing the round annual badges. I've seen one other and know of five but that is all I'm aware of. This has a three digit serial number cast into the back (which I temporarily covered over with paper) as were each button cast with a unique serial number. It measures about 1 1/8" x 1 1/4". Perhaps the most rare NY State Gui...de badge.
