Welcome to the website. I’m sure you will enjoy it as I do.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Bob Daly and I’m a retired Detective from the NYPD. Since retiring I’ve become an avid collector of police memorabilia, patches, pins and coins. Can please tell me how I can items like that from your department? I’m willing to trade or what ever.
Thanks!
Stay safe out there!
