September 2018 Update

Well, summer is officially over, but things are still hot over here at Huntzman Enterprises.   

This summer saw the debut of a couple of new insignia:

DHS HSI Crisis Negotiation Unit – New York Office

US Coast Guard – Hurricane Harvey Rescue Operations

As always, if the patches are made by us they will have our sticker on the reverse, unless of course it has a velcro backing. In the case of the stickers, we change them often in design, information and color of ink used. While this is not foolproof, it does help to keep the reproduction artists off balance. We have sometimes seen a particular patch that was produced in a later year using an earlier year’s sticker.

Sadly, we just learned that the ‘Spartan Helmet’ patches we did for the Gelderland-Zuid, Netherlands Politie Interventieteam have been reproduced by a well-known patch counterfeiter in Spain. Fortunately, there are a number of differences between these fakes and the originals which makes them easy to spot.

We also produced a challenge coin / bottle opener for the NYPD Counter Terrorism Division, but getting a decent picture to post up has been eluding me. I promise to get one and list it up shortly.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

April 2018 Update

Well, things here at Huntzman Enterprises have been quite busy here of late, and I am just now finding some free time to do a monthly insignia design update. It's my intention to do a monthly listing of all the new patches, pins or coins that have come out in the previous month. It's our way of helping collectors know what authentic items are coming out onto the market.

As always, if the patches are made by us they will have our sticker on the reverse, unless of course it has a velcro backing. In the case of the stickers, we change them often in both design, information and color of ink used. While this is not foolproof, it does help to keep the reproduction artists off balance. We have sometimes seen a particular patch that was produced in a later year using an earlier years sticker. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

March saw the debut of four new insignia:

NYPD St. Patrick's Day 2018 Patch

NYPD Subdued Regulation Patch (Velcro Backing) - Designed to be used on tactical vests, gear bags, etc. 

Cazenovia College, New York, Police Academy Patch

Richmond, Virginia St. Patrick's Day 2018 Patch
