Very fine and rare VICTORIAN Silver Metropolitan Police Pass.

In the mid-nineteenth century, this item was originally called a ‘carriage pass’ and was initially made in silver, it ensured that the carriage of Queen Victoria’s mistress of the robes could pass by the police without interruption. The pass issued on the authority of the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis was also given to other designated eminent people some of which were members of the Royal Family, ambassadors and government ministers.

The obverse inscription in raised lettering (rank engraved), ‘Metropolitan Police, Car Pass, The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, issued by the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis’; the reverse inscription in raised letters, ‘Pass to be used only when person to whom issued is using the car, not to be exhibited on car but to be shown to Police when necessary’.
