This is a deputy sheriff circle star badge from the 1890s or early 1900s. The badge is different from other models in that it has a dash on each of the star’s five arms and two on the circle.
Circa 1890s – early 1900s.
Nickel-plated brass with painted lettering.
Horizontal safety-style pin with “C” catch.
This is from a police collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAHIX07 LDBEX8/10
8 (Excellent-): Badge has surprisingly little wear and tarnish.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
