I purchased quite a bit from Larry Hagman's estate during the authorized auction held by Juliens. To have memorabilia such as this was very appealing. The Blackinton star badge from Fiesta, Texas, "Security" is marked "60" to most likely indicate its issue in 1960. (A number of the other pieces in this and other Lots that I purchased were from 1960). The "Official" Hat Badge from the 1992 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is also a very special piece. The two other pins relate to charities. Euroducks is the European Waterfowl Habitat Fund. The other button is a commemorative that I have not identified.
The star badge is marked Blackinton on back. Blackinton is a prestigious manufacturer of police badges, so this was most likely especially made for Mr. Hagman.
All pieces are in Very Good Condition.
Sizes: The Star Badge is 2 1/2" point to point. The Hat Badge is 1.9" high and 1 1/2" across. The Euroducks pin is a tad over 1".
All of memorabilia items from celebrities. such as Phyllis Diller, Larry Hagman, Robert Goulet and many others, are accompanied by my Certificate of Authenticity, which includes Auction and Lot Number if applicable. The button is 3/4".
