    I've been searching for my Grampa's badge for about three years now. The number he was issued in 1919 was 2377. I saw & bought the badge in the picture on eBay. I was stunned to find a Boston badge just five digits off! I've accumulated several of these Boston Hackney Carriage Driver badges. As I search for Grampa's badge, I watch closely in any and all Boston archival web sites to try to identify the person who was issued the other Boston badges I've found. I'd love to be able to hand over a badge to an ancestor of the original "Hackney Carriage Driver" it was issued to. I won't give up my search for 2377!!! I've crossed paths with a bunch of great people on eBay, etc., and I look forward to my weekly update from CW. If you're searching for a special item,, family heirloom, etc., my advice is to stay with it every day and hit up all the sites you can find. By doing so and keeping in contact with people close to your search, you just may stimulate enough interest to cause collectors, antique shops, and the like, to take a look into their "old stuff" and maybe spot the item you are looking for. Just don't give up! Remember, "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down". T.T.F.N.! Jim
