I recently purchased a screen worn Sheriff Andy Taylor badge from the estate of Richard O. Linke. Please take a look at this quick video that talks about the badge and its history and lineage.

You wouldn't want to sell it, would you?  I couldn't give you no $200, but...

might go $50.

$75?

Seriously, nice find!

This is Big, BIG.

Really nice find and great piece of the show. Thanks for sharing this and your well documented video..

You should post this on the Facebook page Mayberry After Midnight, people would love it.

Mayberry After Midnight? I’ll do it now.

Guys I have INCREDIBLE news! After over a week of searching and scanning thru over 200 episodes of the show, I have conclusively and definitively screen matched my badge to Season 8 Episode 11...Andy’s Investment.

I can’t tell you how amazing it is to know and to be able to prove this badge was used in an episode of the show. It is safe to say this badge is the only verifiably screen matched Sheriff Andy Taylor badge in existence.

Here is the SCREEN MATCH!!!

I'd say that's a match, noting some letters are thicker than others, the "H" in sheriff, the "YB" in Mayberry.

These were from "Lawman Barney" several badge shots in that one.


Photos of the screen match.....

Congrats on purchasing the "Holy Grail" of TAGS!  

Hi Randy and thank you. I have it definitively screen matched to four episodes. I’m simply ecstatic.
