I'm not a badge collector, but I have had these two for about 25 years. I was told by a local collector that they were real, and I probably agree with the first one, but unsure about the second one because it doesn't have a makers mark on the back.
These are both from Napa, California.
The first one has marked on the back:
ED. JONES & CO.
OAKLAND, CA.
The second one, Auxiliary Police 11 Napa lacks any markings on the back & the back is painted black.
Any comments on authenticity is welcomed.
Thanks for looking,
Dave

    Hey,pw. Kevin says not to doubt authenticity be cause people don't fake badges for auxiliary services.

    Yeah, he is a wealth of information & we don't miss great things until they are gone.

    I have been collecting badges for 30+ years, both badges look good to me. Many genuine badges are not marked and many fakes are.

    By the way where is Kevin? I hope he is all right.
  12. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 10 months ago
    Oh, he's fine & still don't know what went on and don't really ask. He just had somebody offer him some crates or something at a good price. He has sent pics of some things. What appear to be obviously original helmets & a bunch of things that obviously go back to about 15-1600's. He is getting appraisals and sounds as happy as we wish we were. Other than forwarding his wealth of knowledge, I haven't talked to him in about 3 wks, but know he is real busy. Some of that stuff, you might be seeing on Sotheby's or Christie's.
