Brief info about Irvine & Jachens Inc:
Mr. J C IRVINE opened his shop making police badges and buckles in 1886. After the famous earthquake and fire he took on a partner by the name of Jachens. They made some of the greatest and most loved Silver Work in California; their engraving was highly regarded. In 1971 the company split and the buckle business moved to Nevada and changed their name to COMSTOCK SILVERSMITHS.

Anything with the IRVINE and JACHENS mark on the back is at least 40 years old or even older!!
