Deputy Sheriff Badge
Deputy Sheriff Badge – This type of badge was worn by two Deputies, Bob Olinger and J.W. Bell, who were assigned to guard Billy the Kid when he was incarcerated and awaiting hanging in Lincoln, New Mexico. Deputy Marshal Robert Olinger and Deputy Sheriff James Bell, of the Lincoln County, New Mexico, Sheriff’s Department, were shot and killed during an escape attempt by the notorious outlaw Billy the Kid.
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.
