This is a replica of A Chief of Police badge made from metal with a needle attachment so it can be attached to cloth. The first English settlers took the figure of the Sheriff to the American continent, so that he maintained the order in the new populations. At the time of the gold rush their presence became more and more necessary, and to distinguish who gave the law, was placed a badge on the chest, as a recognizable symbol of rank and authority. At the beginning, many badges were shaped like oval or shield, later, they began to be represented with a star of 5 points, symbol associated with the flag of the United States. Since then, the sheriff's badge has evolved to 5, 6 or 7-pointed star. This would make an ideal accessory to a fancy dress costume.
