This Old West Reproduction Badge comes in a presentation box with a
brief history.

Size    1  3/4" Diameter

In 1881 Cochise County was formed from the eastern part of Pima
County,with Tombstone Arizona as the County seat. John Behan, Sheriff
of Tombstone, was the original wearer of this badge.
Tombstone's first sheriff was John Behan. Shortly after Behan became sheriff, Virgil Earp was appointed as City Marshal. The Earps had a conflict with the Clantons and the McLaurys, while Behan supported them. Behan also had an interest in Josephine Sarah Marcus, but she was sweet on Wyatt Earp, so Behan held a special dislike for Wyatt. After the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Behan arrested Virgil, Wyatt, and Morgan Earp, and Doc Holliday for the murders of Billy Clanton and Tom and Frank McLaury, but the Judge ruled that their actions were justified.
Each high quality Old West replica badge is crafted out of brass and steel. They are double-stamped then silver plated. Next, each Old West replica badge is individually hand finished for a unique antique look.
