This is Famous Badges of the Old West - Model PH027 - An authentic replica of the badge used by the Pinkerton National Detective Agency. Allan Pinkerton established his private detective agency in 1850. Pinkerton became famous when he claimed to have foiled a plot to assassinate president-elect Abraham Lincoln, who later hired Pinkerton agents for his personal security during the Civil War. Pinkerton agents were usually well paid and well armed. The company logo was an open eye (an icon from which the term “private eye” was coined) and its motto “We Never Sleep”. Pinkerton agents relentlessly tracked criminals all over the country, including well known outlaws such as Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch, the Reno Gang and Jesse James.
Now, you can relive the history of the Old West. In the footsteps of such legendary Pinkertons as James McParland, Frank Geyer, and Chas Schumacher, you’re on the trail of desperados and renegades throughout the Old West where the legends and the history began.
This replica Pinkerton National Detective Agency badge is a shield style that measures approximately 2½”. Copied from existing originals in museums and private collections, these are nice quality reproduction badges with authentic detailing, not flimsy toys. Each of these Famous Badges of the Old West replica badges are double-stamped from brass, then silver plated, and fitted with sturdily-mounted steel pin fasteners. Next, every badge is individually hand finished for a unique antique look. Finally, each badge is packaged in an old-fashioned style Kraft box with a story inside.
These badges are brand new, individually boxed, and are ideal for the cowboy shooter or re-enactor. A great accessory for your cowboy or Old West lawman outfit. Perfect for every SASS or NCOWS Cowboy Action Shooting category!!
