Special Ranger Badge - Texas and Southwest Cattle Raisers Association On February 15, 1877, in Graham, Texas, the Texas and Southwest Cattle Raisers Association was formed. The original name was the Stock-Raisers' Association of North-West Texas, and Cattlemen in Oklahoma, New Mexico, and the Indian Territory were invited to join. This badge came about when the Association decided to take matters into their own hands and track down outlaws and protect themselves and their herds from the rampant rustling of the day. 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.
