“We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!”
Originating with Treasure of the Sierra Madre and later adapted by Blazing Saddles, it’s now heard regularly on TV dramas and sitcoms. The “Stinkin’ Badge” phrase is definitely an old west to modern day legend.

Can I get a discount by purchasing multiple badges?
Yes, we offer quantity discounts! Discounts are listed near the ADD TO CART button. You can mix and match badge styles to reach discount levels.
I'd like to request a special finish or plating. Is that possible?
No, all finishes/platings are done at the factory level and it is not possible for us to change it. We cannot make antique badges shiny or vise versa.
Can I customize any badge?
No, the way you see the badge in the picture is how the badge is and it cannot be changed. We do offer a line of badges that are blank for customization. These badges can be engraved with your personal text or images but the badge design itself cannot be changed.
What is “Double-Stamped” Brass?
A badge that is stamped out of brass first has a mold or die created for each side of the design. Next a block of brass is placed between the molds and the design is "double stamped" simultaneously on both sides using many tons of pressure. This process pushes and presses the brass up and out to form the badge.
Why Brass instead of Pewter?
Brass is stronger and more durable than pewter. Brass is an alloy metal of copper and zinc. Pewter is an alloy metal of primarily tin. Tin is a relatively soft metal and because of this pewter can scratch and bend easily.
