Item Description
2-1/8” tall brass badge mostly in solid black enamel with brass accents outlining the character as a cartoon-like Shadow in iconic hat and cloak with his raised hand holding a dagger. Badge has no markings but when we ran one of these many years ago we learned that this badge was made for and used by members of The Shadow radio cast around the time that Orson Welles was the voice of The Shadow. We do not know how or how extensively it was distributed. About 50% silver luster remains on the reverse while the front is Mint with glossy black enamel. One of only three we’ve been able to offer in five decades. See following previously unknown related item.
