The term Sheriff is a contraction of "shirereeve", an expression that comes from medieval England and that named the person responsible for imparting justice in a county. At the beginning, many badges were shaped like oval or shield, later, they began to be represented with a star of 5 points, a symbol associated with the flag of the United States. Since then, the sheriff's badge has evolved to 5, 6 or 7-pointed star.
Today, most sheriffs use a star shape badge, while police officers use a shield or oval badge. Federal agencies often use plaques with an eagle on the shield. This handsome replica old west sheriff star badge will outshine them all!
