Stamped issues included the title, city, borough, burgh, constabulary, or such,  identifying which police force was affiliated with it. A true police issue was always associated with the area to be protected. They date back to the early 1800s and come in a nice variety, including some unique round whistles as well as buttons, beauforts, escargots and tube-shaped. Many whistles are sold as police whistles, yet in reality at best were used by a policeman and are more accurately described as general service whistles or even police 'type' whistle. Like fire brigade, asylum, hospital, etc this adds to their collectability.
