LegalityLegality of memorabilia items in my listings. The applicable law is H.R. 4827, P.L. 106-547. This law has two parts, the first part deals with the unlawful use of counterfeit or genuine law enforcement & intelligence, documents, Badges, or any other item. An example would be using such items to impersonate an actual agent /officer. This is unlawful. Title 18, Sec 912 is the applicable law and provides for a penalty of prison and a fine. Usually 5 years and $5000.00 for each and every offense.
However the other part of the law clearly states it is a "defense" and is legal and allows both the use of genuine and counterfeit, law enforcement / Intelligence Badges, documents etc when used lawfully as follows:
1. As a memento, or in a collection or exhibit.
2. For decorative purposes.
3. For a dramatic presentation such as theater, film or television.
4. For any other recreational purposes. The purpose of this law was never intended to prevent an honest collector or theatrical producer from using such items.
So do not buy my memorabilia items if you have any unlawful intentions. The buyer assumes all liability for the misuse of unlawful use of any memorabilia items.
