Bounty Hunter USA Badge story inside the box: In the Old West there may not have been a lawman around for hundreds of miles. Thus a daring bounty hunter could make a living tracking down wanted outlaws like Jesse James and Billy the Kid, so they could claim the rewards offered for their captures. In 1872, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that bounty hunters were a part of the law enforcement system. However they were basically a free agent and not held to the rules of due process and state lines as lawmen were.
Some famous Bounty Hunters were Charlie Siringo, a Pinkerton Detective, and The Dunn brothers who brought in Charley Pierce and George "Bitter Creek" Newcomb, members of the Doolin-Dalton Gang.

What is “Double-Stamped” Brass?
A badge that is stamped out of brass first has a mold or die created for each side of the design. Next a block of brass is placed between the molds and the design is "double stamped" simultaneously on both sides using many tons of pressure. This process pushes and presses the brass up and out to form the badge.
Why Brass instead of Pewter?
Brass is stronger and more durable than pewter. Brass is an alloy metal of copper and zinc. Pewter is an alloy metal of primarily tin. Tin is a relatively soft metal and because of this pewter can scratch and bend easily.
