This circle-star is from the collection of my late stepfather, John B. McKinney. He bought, sold, and traded badges for decades and was a careful collector, so I believe in it's authenticity. If you have any concerns, I would ask that you contact me. Then I can either try to help clear things up, or remove the listing if necessary.The badge is approximately 2 1/4" in diameter. This listing complies with the eBay guidelines for Historical Badges (the badge is at least 75 years old and doesn't look like a current-issue law enforcement badge) and it is being sold as a collectible item only and conveys no authority. I welcome your questions, and please note that the badge is being sold as is.
