The Trail of The Painted Ponies, ” Tin Star Sheriff”


In the Wild West days, frontier sheriffs who did not have access to badge manufacturers but wanted some means of identification that carried authority, would sometimes cut stars out of tin cans. When added to fancy shirts with Old West styling, spangled buttons,and handcuffs that dangled like jeweled bracelets, these ” Tin Star Sheriffs”  not only kept law and order,they were the best dressed ” good guys ” of  the Old West. Measures approximately 7 1/2″ by 7″
