U.S. Marshal (Plain) Badge
U.S. Marshal (Plain) Badge – This is the same type of badge that was worn by James Arness as Matt Dillon in the TV series “Gunsmoke”.
There was no uniform badge in the U.S. Marshal service until 1941, when the “Eagle Top” variety was introduced nationwide. Prior to this, each district made its own identifying badge. This type of badge was worn by the infamous Earp brothers, Wyatt and Virgil. This is also the type of badge worn by James Arness as Matt Dillon in the television series Gunsmoke.
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.
