      Thanks Scott, I have been chasing this badge for 35 years and I was able to purchase it at the A&S auction in Waco, TX. Have a nice Thanksgiving! Chip Greiner

      Thank you sir! I guess there was no question of where your loyalty was and who signed your pay check. Regards, Chip Greiner

      Hey Chip, That's one SWEET badge. Presentation or uniform?

      Hi Dave,
      It was actually his issued badge. There were also 12 Special Agent rank badges that were handed out to each of the 12 Division Special Agents. I have one of those and know we're another 5 reside. Chip
