A stunning 14K gold presentation badge issued to Joseph Jones who was the Chief Special Agent of both the Oregon Short Line and the Southern Pacific Railroad Companies. This badge has a large diamond in the center. Chief Jones made some high profile arrests in the Salt Lake area during the turn of the century.

    Thanks..I have been doing this for 38 years and have 2162 railroad police badges representing over 700 different railroad companies. I have a thing for the 10k, 14k and 18k gold presentation badges. I also like the sterling engraved piece as well. Some of my best pieces go back before the civil war from 1847-1860. These are German nickel, copper or silver. I'm always looking to add to my collection like everyone else who collects something. I bought my first badge in 1973 for $12.00 and still have it. I have a few of my badges on the railroad police website which is: http://www.therailroadpolice.com

    I added the backs, as you can see some use the early T-pin attachment and a couple have engraved testimonials on the rear. In the early days of solid gold badge making they really knew how to craft a piece of jewelry.
