Originally formed in 1857, The New York Metropolitan Police force was made up of 300 raw recruits with little or no training who were sent in to the city to control riots and police the crime infested five points area.

They often fought directly against the much 800 member Municipal Police Force for both station house and street control and eventual won when the Municipal police force was disbanded later the same year. As seen in the movie GANGS OF NEW YORK the Metropolitan Police force was once rescued by the nativist Bowery Boys gang when they were being attacked by the Dead Rabbits.

These antique finished metal knuckles are exact fully functional reproductions of the ones that were issued to all members of the Metropolitan Police force immediately following the 1863 Draft Riots that nearly burnt the entire city to the ground. These are finished in antique bronze with high relief designs and detail.
