The first Australian State to officially wear the "Akubra" or "Lemon squeezer" style hat on duty in various styles; with this badge. Hallmarked "Stokes"  or  "Stokes and Sons ". Issued from c 1927 - 1960. The "Northern Territory" plinth was probably added to this badge, phased in and issued around 1949.
Extremely Rare; with attached plinth.
