The Indian Police Badge would have been a common sight among the Indian tribes, especially when they were dealing with government officials during the late 1800s. This badge has a distinctive, shield-like shape and brass finish. Indians and settlers often had difficulties with one another, and it fell to the United States government to try and keep the peace. Men wearing these badges would have been negotiators during these conflicts, serving to police the Indian tribes in order to ensure that no one, be they Indian or settler, overstepped their boundaries. This badge is attractively shaped, featuring an interwoven US symbol at the top, as well as a bow with crossed arrows at the center, flanked by the words, Indian Police. The badge is crafted from metal and features an attractive brass finish, which helps to set it apart from typical western badges. The back of the badge also features a pin, which makes wearing the badge that much easier. Badge collectors and western enthusiasts are sure to see this Indian Police Badge as a true collectible, and even those with an interest in costuming will be happy to know that this badge is a great accessory to wear when you are out and about in your frontiersman gear.
