Badges were not always the symbol of the lawmen. Sometimes, they were used to identify other professions. This Pony Express Messenger Badge would have been worn by those who rode the frontier for the Pony Express. The bearers of this badge were often the only link that those on the frontier had to the more civilized parts of the East Coast. Ranging far and wide, it is expected that Pony Express riders covered more territory, under more difficult conditions, then just about any other frontier explorer. This badge is relatively distinctive in its look, making it hard to mistake for any other. It has a typical shield design that features an eagle adorning the top and a rider on horseback embossed in the center. Around this rider are the words Pony Express Messenger, which are engraved into the metal. This badge is crafted from metal and features a stunning antique silver finish that really brings this badge to life as a realistic looking western accessory. The back also features a working pin, which makes this badge easy to wear. It has an overall diameter of approximately 2.75 inches. Distinctive and unique, this Pony Express Messenger Badge is quite the little collectible, one that is perfect for enthusiasts and collectors to add the their collections, as well as a great piece to wear any time you want to recreate a truly impressive western ensemble.
