eBay won't do anything about it because I (we)
can't prove anything. It's strictly our word against the seller's. So who
is eBay supposed to believe? I could just be some guy who is trying to ruin the
online business of the seller, as far as they're concerned. So they don't
intervene in these things. eBay is STRICTLY "buyer beware!"
Last year I asked the seller about the patch
& he claims it is legit (what else WOULD he say?) I know it's fake because I
have STUDIED the PC police dept. for about 7 years now & I know that those
patches never adorned ANY PC officer's duds...
Those fake eBay patches first appeared on the
market about 3-4 years ago (rough guess). If they are truly from the 1970s, how
come none were for sale all through the 80's & 90's???????

it worth notifying ebay that the things are counterfeit?
You are no doubt correct in regards to the seller keeping the bidder a
secret to avoid the bidder from finding out the truth.
I'm just thinking out load, but I wonder if Jerry has some room
on his PC site to post photos of a PC police patch and maybe a couple
of representative badges? That might help get the word out about these
