    Extremely Rare Muscogee, Indian Territory Police Badge, Circa 1880-1890. 2.75" across. A fabulous Indian Territory police badge, pre-dating Oklahoma's territorial status and statehood. This well-made, five-pointed, nickeled star with applied ball tips has "City Police/ Muscogee, I.T." in recessed letters on the front. The reverse features a one-piece pin assembly common with badges of the era, retained with the original solder. There are no maker's marks present. The badge has clearly been used as is evidenced by the many honest tiny scratches on the face, the loss of black paint from the recessed lettering, and normal wear to the pin. Muscogee was an important economic and cultural hub not only for the relocated Native people of the area but also the participants in the aggressive westward expansion of the period. An extraordinary badge in fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
