Marshal Deadwood Badge story inside the box:
After the murder of Wild Bill Hickok and the inexplicable acquittal of Jack McCall, the leading citizens of Deadwood decided they needed some law and order. On August 5, 1876, just 3 days after Wild Bill went down, they set up the position of Town Marshal. The first Deadwood Marshal was Isaac Brown and unfortunately for him his career lasted a measly two weeks. On August 20th Isaac and three others were heading to Deadwood from Crook City when they were attacked by Lakota Indians and killed. On September 16th a miners’ court elected Con Stapleton as the new Marshal.

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.
