antique 1882 -1917 Russian Empire coat arms of a class officer county police:

Classes of police officers who had not previously served as officers were assigned lacquered shoulder straps similar in design to those of officers, but with some differences. Along the edges of the epaulettes of police officers were woven narrow silk stripes of the same color as the lumen, and the width of the epaulettes was almost three times less than that of officers in accordance with the states - ⅝ inch (about 28 mm) against 1 ½ inch (67 mm) for officers. Such narrow shoulder straps looked very unattractive and those who wore them did not have respect of common people. That is why in practice the police officers usually wore shoulder straps the width of which was something in between the officer's and the standard police uniform, the width of which was about one verst (45mm) with slight deviations in one direction or another. This epaulettes also belong to them with a width of 50 mm. A gold metal device was a distinctive feature of the district police and of the mounted police guards, who guarded order in the district towns and in the countryside. The woven silk grosgrain, woven stripes and cloth lining and overcoat were supposed to be orange by the state, but in practice they usually used red cloth, a little bit lighter than the army cloth with a pronounced orange tint. Embroidered silver star denoted the rank of collegiate registrar - the first one according to the Table of Ranks. After the February Revolution, and especially after the October Revolution, the former police officers were hunted by both former political criminals and former criminals, since the new government had plenty of them. Townspeople and police officers had to flee abroad or go into hiding; for the possession of even a small piece of evidence such as a photograph, uniform or epaulettes, one could literally pay with his head. That is why police uniforms and insignia are far less common nowadays and are usually in very poor condition as a result of being in the ground, in basements or in attics, while instances of items in good condition are rare. This specimen is in perfect preservation, which makes it truly unique.35
