"I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!"

Recently, William J. Wallis sent me this photo of a Fullerton “Special Police” badge. He got the badge from a "seasoned" Fullerton Police Dept. retiree a few years ago, who told him it came from the Citrus Strike of 1936. The badge is marked on the back with, "L.A. Stamp and Stationary Co." I thought it was an interesting artifact.
On a related note, I spotted what appears to be an 1890s O.C. Deputy Sheriff badge on eBay yesterday. Here it is:This is the style of badge that was used until 1899. I know there are lots of badge forgeries out there, but if this is a fake, it's a very good one.
