Can anyone provide me information regarding the "FBI 100th Anniversary" badge which was issued out by the Dallas FBI office. This badge shows an American flag somewhat draped over one portion of the current looking shield. This badge is also hallmarked by "Symbol Arts" as well. I am not sure if it was ever issued out to the agency or not, any information is greatly appreciated.






-Thanks for your time

Ya, I saw that badge on here awhile back actually. Definitely a rare badge from what I know. Also, looking for the badge patch which I have been told they made one showing exactly what this badge looks like with the American flag draped over the one side of the shield in this variation.

Not sure what information you are looking for but as far as the badge, the one that was posted on the collectors site is one of a few variations out there, though I can not attest to any of them being “real” or authorized versions.
 
Given the fact that there are numerous counterfeits of FBI badges out there, some of very high quality will attest to the expectation that anniversary badges; which are even harder to come by, will likely be duped.
 
Generally, to be made domestically a federal badge must be ordered by the agency in question, but offshore versions have surfaced time and time again.
 
In order to find a genuine federal badge, more so for one from the FBI is quite rare in that most are returned to the agency unless the officer/agent retires, in which case it is supposed to e cut in ½ and encased in Lucite to prevent its misuse; though I have seen variations.
 
If you come across a source of genuine FBI anniversary badges it will likely require that you are or retired from them; examples may include the FBI Association.

This is really good information to take note of, being the badge on the site with the American flag draped over one side of the shield is made by Symbol Arts and recently confirmed this variation of their shield was issued out by the Dallas, TX FBI Bureau office. Interesting enough, noticed their was a posting on here representing a past issued FBI shield, which was also hallmarked by Symbol Arts, unless I am wrong. The shield that I have is encased in lucite, has no safety catch pin on the back, however does show the "Symbol Arts" hallmark and is also a full badge as opposed to be 1/2 cut as mentioned prior in one of these postings. I appreciate all the information that has been provided from this subject heading, which I posted on here.

I have got the "FBI 100th Anniversary - 1908 to 2008 - FBI Police" badge and mini badge made by Blackinton.


Does any one know how many of these badges were made?
