That's interesting. I've never consider selling it.
We have lots of very old family items. My father has what he thought was a Texas Rangers badge. When I contacted the Texas Rangers about this... I got the standard response... which is there are lots of fakes. I showed them the image and I included the date the family member served and it turns out that it pre-dates the Texas Rangers. Houston County Texas census shows the family members lived in the county at the time. Anyway, I understand they get lots of inquiries like this... but this item is probably more rare than a real Texas Ranger's Badge. I'll see if I can post it later tonight in the medals and tokens forum.
