Deputy U.S. Marshal Old West Law Badge
Deputy U.S. Marshal
Taming the Wild West fell into the hands of a unique, new breed of gunslinger. Men dedicated to bringing law, order and peace to an otherwise chaotic and lawless land. The symbol of their authority was the badge they wore.
The original Old West law badges were individually handmade by pounding and / or sawing Spanish or American coins, and hand engraved. Later, the law badges were made by the prisoners at the Yuma, Arizona and La Tuna, New Mexico prisons (still with coins).
History buffs of the Old Wild West have long delighted in collecting artifacts of the time period, relishing the thought of someday actually owning one of the lawmen's badges. However, the remaining badges are very rare and are all in private collections or museums.
Lawmen of the Old Wild West is a collection of law badges which are exact replicas cast from molds made from the authentic, original law badges actually worn by the lawmen of the Old West which are in the possession of private collectors. You'll want to collect them all: US Marshal, Deputy Marshal, Arizona Rangers, Marshall Dodge City, and more.
Great Holiday gift idea.
