    Police Badge Number One from Cripple Creek, Colorado. This badge has great open cut design with a large number "1" in the middle, "Cripple Creek" at top and "police" at bottom in black lettering. This gilded brass badge has its original patina and very slight wear. Mounted on a great looking cowboy felt hat of 6.25" diameter. Cripple Creek was touted as the world's greatest gold camp in its time. From 1890 to 1910, more than 22,400,000 ounces of gold were extracted from over 500 gold mines in the district including Victor, Colorado. This small mountain community was home to well over 50,000 fortune seekers, working the hillside gold mines of Pikes Peak. The population at the 2000 census was 1,115. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Badge is very fine; hat has a couple small holes and some dirt.
