NEW YORK

NEW YORK STATE REQUIRED THE USE OF CHAUFFEUR BADGES FROM 1904-1928. I HAVE A 1929 PROTOTYPE. THE FIRST THREE WERE UNDATED. THANKS TO SUSAN CONNOLLY FOR HER HELP IN GETTING THE #1 BADGE. IT BELONGED TO HER GREAT, GREAT UNCLE DICK ROBE.THE FIRST UNDATED BADGE ("A" BADGE) WAS USED FROM 1904-1909.  THE BREAKDOWN IS AS FOLLOWS  1904 (1-2266), 1905 (2267-6653), 1906 (6654-13,631), 1907 (13,632-23,020), 1908 (23021-33356),  1909 (33357-48884), 7 31,1910 (48885-58480). THE LARGE ROUND ("B" BADGE) WAS USED IN 1910. IT WAS ONLY USED FOR  A SHORT TIME AND IS THE TOUGHEST BADGE TO FIND. THE PHOTOGRAPH  IS A 1905 SOUVENIR OF A SIGHT SEEING RIDE ON THE "OBSERVATION AUTOMOBILE".

THE COLLECTION IS FROM 1910-1952. THERE ARE TWO UNDATED BADGES. I HAVE ONE OF THEM. I AM ALSO MISSING THE 1944 BADGE. THE NUMBERS ON THE TAXI CARD MATCH THE NUMBERS ON THE HACK BADGE UNTIL 1928, AND TO MAKE MATTERS MORE COMPLICATED, THERE IS A SECOND SET OF NUMBERS ON THE TAXI CARD WHICH MATCH THE NUMBERS ON THE STATE ISSUED CHAUFFEUR BADGE. I ONLY HAVE ONE SET (1917).

 

 

   1917 CHAUFFEUR LICENSE AND BADGE. THE NUMBERS (651) MATCH ON BOTH.
