    Yes, I know it is a Balloon observer's badge. I just had a mind fart. I am glad I didn't buy it. The jerk is asking $900 for it! Have you ever seen a LEGIT Balloon Observer's Badge? Could someone please post a legit badge?

    Last one i saw for sale was about £4,500. If any were awarded it was only in small numbers or possibly private purchases. I don't have one to show. Stewy S

    This badge was made by a British actor called Sean Barry Weske. After his acting career ended he was heavily involved in the production of badges and insignia that were used as movie props.

    Yeah Stewy, an intentional rip off of the original BSW maker.
