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.

July 2018 Update

Well, summer is in full swing and things here at Huntzman Enterprises have been quite busy, both professionally and personally.   

While it has been chaotic with all the new designs being produced it has also been a bit of a challenge to some medical issues that arose.  Fortunately, these have been address and we are well on our way to recovery. This has caused a backlog in terms of updating the website with the latest designs, so I will do my best to keep things in order of production.

May / June saw the debut of four new insignia:

Andrew G. Nelson (Author) Logo - This logo was designed for author Andrew G. Nelson, a retired NYPD sergeant. It incorporates the NYPD flag design, but modified in the form of a sergeant's chevron. They were done in both color and subdued variations. These were produced as giveaways in connection with his line of mystery / suspense novels. For those interested, you can find his website here: www.andrewgnelson.org

Richmond, Virginia Police 'Bike For Blue Memorial Ride' Patch

Assumption, Illinois Police Regulation Patch (There is also a subdued version)

Burgos, Spain Police Narcotics Patch

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.

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.
