I like those Illinois badges, they have some nice detail.

ILL tags are great!

I had no idea there were Chauffeur badges and really wonder why so many of them were dropped???

I found my only one almost thirty years ago. My friend found another one the next day in the same area. Sadly I don't have it any longer. I saw one like it in an antique store for $75.00 back then and mine was in better shape. I haven't found another one since.

I figured I would bring this thread back to life since there seems to be a few posted recently that maybe could be added to this thread.

I found my badge a few years ago. I got run off of the site where I found it. I pulled wheats, silver, and this badge out of there in about 30 minutes of hunting. Sure wish I could go back.

Default Texas Chauffeurs Badge

Here's one I found a few years ago at an old hotel that burned down in the 40's or 50's.
