I have always wanted a metal Detector because we have a lot of land and there are many different old house places on it. I finally broke down and bought on and on my first real hunt i find this 1929 Registered Chauffeur Badge. I would love to put a name with it but have come up empty handed. I have called the DMV, State Police and Local Library. Any suggestions on how i can put a name with this Badge?

    Neat find!

    Good luck with finding a name-- maybe the state Dept of Revenue or Taxes will have records.

    Thanks, I'll try there.

    Also the state archives may be able to help (may even have the records).

    It depends on the state. I have run into archivist who really try and help-- others who just say "NO". I haven't had any dealings with the LA folks.

    Here is a link with phone numbers:

    I'd ask to speak with an archivist. Some states have online request forms, but I don't see anything here.

    I have sent the Archives section an email.. Let's hope for the best.. Thanks again for your help..

    GREAT-- emails have worked very well for me in the past. Don't be alarmed if it takes a while (depends on the state again). In MOST instances, I get a response within a day or two, but sometimes it takes a couple of weeks.
