Can I see your badge officer? Sure, I got it for 35$ just off the street.

CNN.com - 1,300 fake law badges seized - May 10, 2005: "NEW YORK (CNN) -- Federal agents arrested a man on Monday, charging him with possessing and selling more than 1,300 counterfeit badges representing 35 law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency said.

The counterfeits are 'very, very good,' said Special Agent in Charge Martin Ficke, who added that nine out of 10 would 'pass scrutiny.'

...Federal agents are searching computer files seized from Khorosh to try and determine who might have bought the badges, which sold for $35 to $50, the agency said."
