Below are photographs and screengrabs of patches that are known to me as to be unauthorized reproductions/FAKE California police patches. When using the term unauthorized reproductions, it generally means that the patch was made by someone outside of an agency for their own personal gain/profit. Collectors are advised to carefully examine and be aware of such items on the marketplace and to seek advice from seasoned collectors.
The patches shown on this page have been 100% verified through analysis and consultations among a group of veteran collectors.
DO NOT COLLECT THESE FAKES.
IT MAKES YOUR COLLECTION WORTHLESS.
