    These photos came from a Japanese auction site. The badge is supposed to be that of Lt. A.J. Shimamura, one of the characters on the show, though the auction text doesn't specify whether this was a screen-used badge.

    [attachmentid=6879]

    The manufacturer of the badge is Irvine & Jachens:

    [attachmentid=6880]

    The badge bears a three-digit control number, which was obfuscated for the purposes of the auction:

    [attachmentid=6881]

    For comparison, here's the badge carried by Eastwood in Dirty Harry:

    [attachmentid=6882]

    Hope this helps. :)

    They were issued SFPD 7 point gold 2.75" diameter stars with the text: "S.F. POLICE" on the bottom and the rank on top. Nash went from INSPECTOR to CAPTAIN in the series, his star # was 22. If I can dig out my Nash star I'll post a pic, but here is a similar star and Nash's cards. The badges are hallmarked "Irvine & Jachens." The numbers are applied, raised numbers. The production co. received permission from the SF Film Commission and SFPD to obtain authentic badges and ID's. It should be noted that Don was generally reviled by most cops and the show was not popular with cops except for comedy relief.


    Here's part of my SF display showing similar badges and ID's from SFPD based productions

    eltee, that is an AMAZING badge collection. Where did you get the LAPD sergeant one at the bottom of the pic? Is it real metal?

    Personally, I like that Mike Stone ID. Is that authentic to the screen-used? That's one of the few movie/TV cop IDs I've seen in which the picture looks as if it's a real ID photo and not a screen cap or publicity still.

    Very nice.. :thumbsup
