Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. Badge

Just purchased this off of eBay.  I don't really collect stuff outside my local telcos but at $39.99 I couldn't resist.

There is another C&P badge for sale on eBay.  The design looks similar to mine except for the enamel and modern style clasp.  I think mine is a little older.

Here are a few more pics of the badge, which is nickel-plated brass

Nice badge at a good price. I'll check mine when I get home and see what the number on it is.

I saw the second badge but I didn't bid because I'm not sure it's legit.

I'm not saying it's fake, but that sure looks like a modern glue-on type clasp
