Pinkerton was the largest private law enforcement organization in the world at the height of its power. This badge was worn by Pinkerton detectives in the days of the west, who were most famous for working with the government. Pinkerton became famous when he claimed to have foiled a plot to assassinate president-elect Abraham Lincoln, who later hired Pinkerton agents for his personal security during the Civil War.
The badge is impressively styled, featuring a shield shape that is simply decorated, featuring an engraved star as well as engraved lettering. The badge is crafted from solid copper and features an antique silver finish that really highlights its design. The metal badge is hand made and aged to be accurate to the originals with a heavy pin back for attaching to the thick clothing of the era. Each is properly dished and deeply engraved. The Pinkerton Detective Agency Badge truly looks great when it is pinned onto the shirt of an authentic looking Wild West costume.
This Pinkerton Detective Agency Badge is a well-made replica from America’s past to complete your history collection.
