The GoDE Company is now making a reproduction of the Mississippi Highway Patrol badge. One thing about GoDE badges is… they are sold as reproductions, and are fairly priced by the manufacturer.

Another thing about the GoDE MHP badges that should be helpful to collectors is their numbering system. For example, all of their Mississippi badges display the same number C30.

If you are a state badge collector, just be aware that this badge is now being made in quantity and they will be seen on the auction websites and at badge shows. GoDE hallmarks the badges they make, and although I have not seen a photo of the back of this reproduction, I would safely assume it does carry the GoDE hallmark.

Our publication tells the secrets of telling a "department issue" badge from a fake or a reproduction. Should you encounter a badge that you have questions about, do send us a copy of the photos, front and back. This will
help us in our efforts of telling other collectors what is out on the market these days. Should you encounter a state patrol badge and have questions about it, send us a photo of the badge, back and front, and let us give you an opinion. Remember, it is your input that alerts us to the fakes and reproductions that are out there. Support this site by telling us of questionable badges. Our BADGE GUIDE will assist you in collecting only valid badges, and will advise on a bracket price for each state.
