I'm trying to find out if this U.S. Deputy Marshal badge for the Arizona Territory is genuinely old, or just a reproduction. I have seen reproductions w/ the same writing & marks, but this one SEEMS old. It was amongst some items that my 92 year old mother had collected when she was running an Antique Shop, which she opened in the early 1960's, and retired from in 2008. It is 3" wide x 3.5" tall. It weighs 1.24 oz. - The pin looks like it has been re-soldered. It is not magnetic. Can anyone shed any light on this seemingly old badge?
