    A police officer must have been here at one time. Any info on this would be helpful.

    I was detecting at an old plantation house when I came across a signal that bounced between a penny and a dime. I sometimes skip over the bouncy targets, but sense my previous bouncy target produced a Merc I decided to give it a go. I dug down about 6 inches when I hit some metal. It didn't take me long to realize it wasn't a coin. With it being some old property I continued to work it out of the hole even though I expected a potted meat can or something. Low and behold after cleaning it off I found what looks to be an old police badge. Does anyone have any knowledge on whether it would be real or how old it could be?

    too much detail to be a replica. IMHO

    Nice looking badge. I see you are from North Carolina. You wouldn't happen to be close to Mayberry would you? You know how Barney Fife was always losing things. Barney!

    I'd vote real deal or at the very least an excellent replica. Can you post up a pic of the back zoomed in a little? Glad you didn't pass that one up nice find!

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    That doesn't look like something one would try to duplicate.. I think it is the real deal. Cook Find!

    Get hold of the folks in Duplin county NC (I.E. - Sherriff's office) Just Google "Duplin county NC sheriff" Should turn up contact telephone number, mailing address...etc...etc. Get hold of the PAO (Public Affairs Office) who should steer you in the right direction. Based on the design...etc...etc...thinking probably 1920's... Might even be late 1800's based on the design...
