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.

Here’s an updated video of the badge......

Nice work! You’ve got a nice piece of TAGS memorabilia!

Thank you friend. I hope I don’t sound overly proud, but I feel that this badge....now that it is definitively screen matched....might be the finest piece of memorabilia from the entire show. I honestly feel it is a museum piece. From what I understand, Archie Bunker’s chair is in the Smithsonian...and this badge is on par with that chair in my opinion.

Don’t forget Barney wore it too in “Sheriff Barney” when he was considering the Greendale job.

I just found a screen match to my badge on Getty Images. This photo was taken in 1967 and is a spot on match.

A closeup......
