Thanks everyone but I've already resigned myself that I'm out a bunch of money and those badges will never surface--probably thrown in the trash. The seller is working through the process but I have little faith in the postal service. V/r Shawn
Yeah, that totally blows b/c the odds of recovering even 1 is so slim, prob. more than winning the lottery. And does anybody even know a person who they paid up? I never heard of it. Plus even getting paid for cost, u goota go to work finding it all over as your time has no value. I've had good luck with them, 100's of things through them. but several years ago they smashed a box, destroyed the contents, family heirlooms, and denied it. Most likely the thief has a bunch of stolen stuff too, and has little to no idea of what to do with them. In the mean time, it's not the names on those badges but details, matching up any and every defect, whatever makes each one unique from any others. Otherwise, even if one surfaced u still screwed b/c most investigators on things like this are hardhead dopes. U gotta teach them what's i unique from any other and then ram it into their opinionated, 'know it all' tiny brain..
