This is a Virginia Game Warden badge that was issued as an official uniform badge in 2003 for the 100 year centennial of establishment of game wardens in Virginia. The badge was decommissioned as of June 1, 2004. It no longer carries any authority. Virginia Game Wardens have since been renamed Conservation Police. The badge is in mint condition. It is approximately 1 1/2" x 2 1/2". It is a solid back badge. It is not a stamped badge. It was made by C.W. Nielson MFG. Corp in Chehalis, Washington. It has the makers name and date on the back. It is also engraved on the back "1903 - 2003, Vi et consilio" which came from Meriwether Lewsis meaning "by power and knowledge". The badge was featured on the front of the May 2003 issue of Virginia Wildlife Magazine that is published by the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries. It has 14 pages dedicated to the history and job of Virginia Game Warden. I will include this magazine with the badge.
