Get transported back in time with your own sheriff badge

If you are a budding badge collector with an eye on the past then you can truly get transported back in time with your own sheriff badge. Your mind is sure to love those good old western times when people settled disputes with guns and the sheriff knocked out outlaws with one swift movement of the wrist and the trigger-finger.

In the past century, the west truly did see some violent action that has been immortalized in several movies and books. Most of these stories also featured a heroic sheriff that stood his or her ground to defend the honor of the town. Each of these sheriffs proudly sported a badge that displayed a star usually with the words “Sheriff” inscribed across it. These badges were made out of metal and you can now locate high quality remakes over several online stores.

You can easily collect such badges and even wear them to costume parties. However, if you do have a higher budget and want your hands on a genuine antique sheriff’s badge then you might need to contact antique stores or look out for special online sites that conduct sales of such antiques. It would be a good idea to authenticate the antique badge that might have been worn by an actual sheriff in the past with the help of an expert before you put any genuine money on the table.

In addition to metal badges you can also browse through intricately designed and woven sheriff embroidery badges that can be easily affixed on to your clothing such as your t shirt, sweat shirt, jacket, or even your hat or cap. These embroidered badges or patches offer detailed designs of the sheriff badge that can turn any plain piece of cloth into a colorfully impressive one. These badges can be purchased from online stores as iron on badges or sew patches and it will only take a few minutes to attach a badge to your favorite clothing or cap. All you need is a little water and an iron to fix the embroidery badge on normal cloth and a needle and thread if you want to fix the badge on nylon cloth.

If you own a dog such as a german shepherd dog or any other breed of dog then you can also extend the sheriff theme by seeking out dog badges that display that impressive sheriff’s star. The embroidered badge can now be ironed or sewn on to any piece of dog clothing such as a dog t-shirt, vest or dog cap. Your dog can now command authority as he or she proudly struts through the neighborhood park. In addition, both of you can also attend a theme party or a costume party wearing your badges with great pride. If you wish to further extend that passion then you can also visit Arizona or New Mexico so as to take a trip down to the wild old west.

If you have always been fascinated by the wild west of the past then you can turn that fascination into a collection by collecting actual or replica badges of sheriffs of yesteryears. You will certainly get transported back in time with your own sheriff badge and you can extend your passion by outfitting your pet dog with a similar badge too.
