Every one loves this badge. But if you wear it, you better have a pocket full of 'Brothel Tokens'. And having a little information about "Inspectors" is handy.

Marshall Badge
I am very pleased with the Old West Marshall Badge I purchased from your company. I purchased it to go inside the display case with my authentic 1893 Colt 45 SAA Revolver. I have received very positive comments from friends who have seen it. They say it looks like it is original and really adds to the Revolver display. Thanks for such a nice product.

It's Cool to be a U. S. Marshal
This is so cool. I got the badge on a whim. My wife really digs it though. I bought a reproduction .45 caliber Colt 1873 Cattleman and I needed a holster. When I ordered the holster, I ordered the badge too. I am really pleased and it makes going to the gun club pretty fun. Some of the other guys at the gun club are a little jealous even though they won't admit it.

very disappointing
This badge is of the poorest quality I have ever seen. The finish is horrible. When I tried to shine it the very thin coating of silver came off exposing the copper underneath, what the copper coating is covering is hard to say, definitely nothing any good. I've seen really cheap junk badges that looked better. I would not wear this ugly think on my fine vest.

I was very pleased with your promt attention to my order. I have been in law enforcement my whole life and retired in 2007 after 37 years of service. I as thrilled at the authenticity of the badge you sent me. The detail and design were amazing. The products if found at your web site are now in my favorites for easy orders in the future. If anyone ask's me, I would highly recommend your site for any and all old western needs.

The US Marshal badge is a pretty heavy duty item and worth the price if you are in need of this type of accessory. There are some other cool badges on the site, but this one has the look and feel of the real thing.

This is a really neat costume piece. Heavy, full-metal, with a thick and sturdy pin. Just be careful you don't damage any delicates with its weight of pin.

I think the badge needs to be larger to be more authentic, but I might be wrong. I do wish it was a bit larger though.

Nice Badge
As I looked at virtually all available Texas Ranger badges on the web, it became apparent that none of them were anywhere close to being realistic. First the original was hand made from a Mexican 5 Peso coin. This one was cast metal with a pin soldered on the back. All these badges read "Texas Rangers" with an "s". The original was singular in spelling "Texas Ranger". It spoke of the man, not the organisation. In their defense, it is against the law to make an identical reproduction of a Texas Ranger badge. I wasn't looking for an identical reproduction, I needed a badge to do a show and this filled the bill. Don't expect anything more than a costume piece and particularly at this price.

I ordered two Old West Badge - Texas Ranger Stars which both arrived promptly and were as expected but for the pin on one badge was broken off the back due to a light misaligned weld. I'm sure this is a rarity so I'm giving a 5 star rating just the same. Star/Badges might have been a tad on the small side but the quality and size were as described.

Badge worthy of a true Pinkerton
Purchased this for use in an Old West Steampunk cosplay, as well as for some potential CAS matches at some point down the line. The badge is excellent quality, with a nice-looking patina-ed finish and a solid feel. Not flimsy in any way. True, the pin is large and may have an adverse affect on some fabrics, BUT that comes with the territory. The back of the badge did have a dry, sooty black residue on it that I simply wiped away, but be sure to clean it before putting it on anything white! Overall, excellent product and well up to my expectations.

Problem,not steel?!
I bought two of these. Looker pretty good but a bit dull on the finish. Described as being made of steel a little 600 grit wet/dry paper should fix that right up, right? Nope, the badge is made of copper and plated with "steel" and that plating came right off. Magnet test proved the copper base. That one went in the trash. Be aware of the composition of this product. Other than that I am very satisfied with this badge. I will be leaving the one remaining badge as it was received

Looks like the real thing
I'm sort of a stickler for details. I'm a history buff, and when I do old west gunfights, I want my outfit to look authentic. Maybe a lot of people don't know that the Ranger badges have been made from a Mexican coin, but I do. I was impressed with the detail on this badge. If it passes my inspection, it will pass most people.

I like the authenticity of the badge and the fact it was made out of medal. Maybe it is me, but the badge seemed small in size and perhaps that was the way it was supposed to be worn to keep from being a target in the Wild West but I would have liked it a little larger in size.
