Colorado Rangers Badge - In 1861, the Jefferson Rangers, originally founded in 1859 to keep peace in Colorado, were reorganized as the Colorado Rangers. On January 29th, 1923 Governor William Sweet gave an executive order to disband the Rangers, leaving Colorado without statewide police protection until 1935. Our Old West replica badges are crafted out of steel and brass. We double-stamp them and then they are silver plated. Finally each Old West badge is hand finished for that worn, antique look. Heavy safety pin closure on the back of each badge. Badges arrive in a small gift box complete with story. Depending on the badge, size range is 1 5/8" inches to 3 1/8″ H.
