I'm in on a couple of the items. Not on the badges.

The face on the Hendee badge looks different than the originals I’ve seen here. No nostril hole, no bent nose, mouth different and just no complete face. I’m new to this, am I right to think these are repos? What I don’t know, is the back relieved where the writing, etc on the front is raised? This one appears to be smooth on the back. By the way, I am looking for a Hendee badge for the barn find Indian I got and shared with you all recently.

I would look closely at many of the items here, I am suspect of the graphics on the leather skull cap for one, and the backing on the metal sign has to be wrong, any cardboard from 1940 is going to have oxidation and be brittle, even stored out of light.

The back of the tall one is smooth. It should look lust like the front. The small one has some detail on the back, but not enough. Look very close.
Yeah, tall one is missing the embossing characteristics on the back side. And the small one is missing the screw holes, the paint in the cursive lettering and lack of to nonexistent embossing on the back, just looks fake...

Both of those badges brought good money. Somebody is in for a bad surprise! V/r Shawn

There is a Hendee script badge listed, I would be taking a real close look at that one as well............

Sometimes, I hope to get a "deal" or discount on a cheap reproduction item, versus the less obtainable.
It does not help, when others, either have the same idea, or worser, bid-up prices, perhaps thinking the items are not fake.

True. I buy at auctions all the time, and what i see often is a group or lot of items where some of it is legit, but it's watered down with repros, some obvious, but some not so obvious, with the hopes of generating bids. It has become stagecraft at certain auction houses and now, on Ebay all the time.

I am grateful that my badge (fake) was given to me! You move forward on projects, what ever it takes to get it done, that's what matters!
