Looking for a Lighthouse Service Badge

Looking for information on where to purchase a Lighthouse Service Badge. These were worn on the hat and sometimes on the breast of the jacket by Lighthouse Service depot watchmen.

I believe that some lighthouse gift shops may sell these, and either the real thing or replicas will do. If anyone knows where these can be purchased, please let me know. A photo of the badge can be seen on the next to last page of this article:

Thanks for your help!

Judy,

Are you talking about a cloth patch? If so I have a couple of replica badge patches I bought from the gift shop at Bodie Island a few years back. I would try with them, if I was you.

If you are looking for a metal badge I don't know where to send you.

Thanks Eric. I love your lighthouse patch collection (attire)! Got into this quest because of my own attire...wearing my "lighthouse" rain gear yesterday in Freeport with a group Paul was working with.

But this guy is looking for the metal badge. I've gotten some emails with a couple links to places where it can be purchased, and just got another response about some Ebay entries.

So, should have all that's needed now.

Thanks, all!
