REPRODUCTION POLICY:
1. All reproduction items must be clearly marked as such. Tables which have reproduction items must have them in boxes or bags that are clearly marked "REPRODUCTIONS" in bold letters on all sides. If they are being displayed individually, the tables must have a sign taped on the display surface that states which items are reproductions.
 
2. All reproductions which are to be displayed alongside authentic items must be individually marked as such, either with a small sticker, sign or with permanent marker directly on the surface of the items. If you don't have time to individually mark the items, then don't display them.
 
3. If you have several reproductions of one item, then all of them must be marked or placed in a box or bag that is marked as described above.  
 
4. Signs which say, "Authenticity of these items is unknown", or anything to that effect, will not be sufficient. If you are unsure as to the authenticity of any item there will be plenty of reputable collectors on-hand to advise you. If there is a difference in opinion, then the item may be sold or traded as an authentic item under the discretion of the show host.
 
5. Due to concerns brought to the host's attention by the local offices of the FBI and TSA, reproduction badges may only be traded and can not be sold.  
 
6. Bullion patches are easily spotted due to the materials used, and are exclusively collected by many hobbyists. Because of this, they may be sold and traded without restrictions. This is the only exception to the reproduction rule.
 
7. Fantasy items are permitted and do not have to be marked as such.  

(THIS IS IMPORTANT), Kentucky law permits the seizure of counterfeit items sold as authentic items. Don't end up getting your stuff taken and having to deal with criminal charges because you are too stubborn to abide by this policy.
