    WHITERIVER, ARIZONA "FORT APACHE" INDIAN POLICE BADGE CIRCA 1910 - This eagle-topped shield badge features a large center star and a rare and collectible origin. Whiteriver, Arizona is located in Navajo County, near historic Fort Apache. It is currently the administrative center for the Apache Reservation in Eastern Arizona, and has long been historically important. This rare and authentic badge was field worn, as the reverse has extensive greenish deposits. The swivel-type pin catch is slightly bent and the swing arm has broken off, it was originally a very sturdy jeweler's catch. The badge is made of nickel, with black, fired enamel lettering which has flaked off in minor spots. There is a slight bend in the wording "river" which is outward. This badge measures 1.75"x 2.5" overall. From The George Jackson Collection.
