1875 Secret Service Badge?
« on: December 28, 2022, 04:22:31 PM »
Does anyone know of a source that could make a reproduction 1875 US Secret Service badge (a la the "Wild Wild West)?  https://www.secretservice.gov/about/history/badges

River Junction Trade Co. has custom badges available. I have one on order right now that is fairly close to what you are showing. Mine is a copy of Sid "Two Gun" Hatfield's badge when he was Police Chief Of Matewan, WVA during the famous "Matewan Massacre".

Hi, I KNOW I'm a bad person, but law enforcement officers wanting to keep a Secret probably shouldn't write Secret Service on their shiny gold badges twice.

As a point of clarification, LEOs don't get to write anything on their badges. They don't design them the government does. That should explain a lot. Governmental entities: local; state; and federal, generally screw up everything they touch.

Your link is broken.  Even if I fix the https at the beginning, it is still broke.  However, looking at that site I found this badge, although it is the shield, not the star that Doc was looking for.

The URL says lapd detective badge, but if you click on it you get the secret service badge.  This link shows their other Secret Service badges, though most are lapel pins:
