the Beachcomber has been restored, and I may be wrong, but seems to have been one of the NYPDs prohibition era planes used to hunt bootleg whiskey distributors

The Police operated a squadron of 5 amphibians built by Keystone and Savoia Marchetti at Glenn Curtiss Airport for patrol and rescue

to the 1940s

before restoration above, in the 60's or 70's,  and below, now fully restored in the Cradle of Aviation Museum
