US Marshal Durango Badge story inside the box:
William ( Big Bill) Thompson stood 6'4"tall, but that didn't help him when he got into a gunfight with Jesse Stansel, the Town Marshal of Durango. Thompson was closing down gambling halls under the Governor's orders. Marshal Stansel objected, and the two emptied their guns at each other. Sheriff Thompson died from four bullet wounds. After it was discovered that one of Thompson's wounds was to his back, the Marshal was arrested for murder. Before the trial could take place, Sheriff Thompson's clothing, which was the vital evidence to prove the murder charge, was burned by the undertaker. As a result, Stansel was acquitted and very soon after he moved to Texas.
