    I have a metal police badge for sale. Needs a clasp replaced on the back.
    The pic isnt that great, but the lines read:

    SPECIAL
    OFFICER
    Kentucky State Seal
    ASHLAND
    KY

    Asking 25.00 shipped

    There's nothing illegal about owning it, unless you try and use it to impersonate a PO (a "Special" one at that...). Which kind of brings me back to my original point - What in the world would you do with it?

    Some people collect badges, medals, etc. Other people dress up like a cop, burst into their own home and handcuff their...nevermind, not sure who would buy it! ;P

    There are people who collect badges, just the same as some people who collect stamps, coins, etc..... and no it is not illegal to own them as long as you dont try to impersonate an officer.

    That was kind of my original point, although I guess I didn't explain myself too well.

    BTW Glen, are you with Everett P.D.? I'm just up the road with Peabody ;)
