Although this is a beautiful Blackinton badge, it does not meet the department
specifications. This badge, being a two-tone, is a fake. It does not even
qualify for the term reproduction under the guidelines. Kansas does not
and has not issued any two-tone badges.
This badge is a very pretty novelty badge, but that is all it is. As a
collectible, it is totally worthless. If you just want a pretty badge
that says Kansas on it, then pay no more than $35 for this thing. Whoever
made this one up doesn't have a clue as to the badge specifications for
the Kansas Highway Patrol.
