Hi, I'm new here and actually sought you at because I am looking for some information/thoughts on an item found in my grandfather's belongs.

We found a gold plated baseball charm that is engraved with M.L.I.A.A 1924

My grandfather lived in Brooklyn/NYC and became NYPD in 1927

My great grandfather owned a fancy steak house in Manhattan in this time frame and he also was an Irish immigrant (if that matters any)

We are just curious for sentimental reasons about this charm and wondered if anyone had any ideas about the engravings

We also thought it could have been a watch fob or something like that

Here is the link to the twitter posting I placed over on @BaseballAlmanac (has photo) https://twitter.com/jemandboo63/stat...34228346982401
