    North Carolina Deputy Badge

    Being the curious type...got hold of a guy at http://www.copcollector.com and asked him if he could identify the time frame it might have been made...sent me back a picture of a current day badge...shape is almost exactly the same...with minor differences...

    Definitely looks real. Wonder what the history behind the badge is. Great find!

    Is that Duplin county? I'd say it was real.

    As a retired Officer, I would say that the badge is real. There should be some evidence of a pin attachment on the back. Dating a badge could be very difficult because there is no standards established as to what the badges should look like, other than the name of the authority, state, or rank. Some of the smaller departments don't even have badge numbers. When I first started my career, we had a few different badges in use due to the limited budget. Some were new, some were 30 years old. The best way to date the badge would be to research or contact the department where the badge was issued and see if they can date it for you. Today, a lost badge must be entered into the National Criminal Information Center and would be considered the property of the department. You may want to verify that possession of the badge is legal in your area before you actually contact the agency. Either way, very nice find and thanks for sharing it with us.

    Out of curiosity, what state/city/locality did you serve?

    What does the back look like? Is it a shirt badge or a hat badge?
