Oftentimes in the West, a sheriff and his deputies were the only source of law and order in a town. This Lincoln County Sheriff Badge is modeled after the badge that would have been worn by lawmen who served in Lincoln County, New Mexico. Perhaps the most famous owner of a badge like this would have been Pat Garrett, who served as sheriff in Lincoln country in 1880 and 1881 and was responsible for finding and killing the famous outlaw, Bill the Kid. This badge has a typical shape for a western lawman badge, being a simple star. This badge is anything but simple, though, instead possessing rich detailing and attractive designs across the star surface. The center features an embossed circle that reads Lincoln County in banners across the top and bottom, with Sheriff in bold lettering across the center. The badge is crafted from metal and features an attractive antique silver finish that perfectly completes its typical western look. The back of the badge features a simple pin that makes wearing the badge quite easy. It has a diameter of approximately 3 inches. Western enthusiasts will, no doubt, be happy to own a Lincoln County Sheriff Badge, if only because of the attachment to lawman Pat Garrett. So if you count yourself as a western enthusiast, or know others who love the era, then perhaps this is the gift to give.
