Description of the Product

6-point Sheriff badge made of metal, with a needle for attachment.

The term Sheriff is a contraction of "shire reeve". Originally in Anglo-Saxon England the reeve was a senior official with local responsibilities under the Crown. After the Norman conquest, it was an office held by a man of lower rank, appointed as manager of a manor and overseer of the peasants, i.e. the person responsible for imparting justice in a county or a shire. Currently the term is still in use in several Anglo-Saxon countries, or countries with colonial ties to Great Britain.

The first English settlers brought the office of the Sheriff to the American continent. As the colonies grew the presence of law enforcement became more and more necessary. To distinguish who had the authority of the law behind them, a badge on the chest was used, as an easily recognizable symbol of rank and authority.

At first most badges were oval or shield shaped. Later a 5 pointed star, a symbol associated with the flag of the United States, was widely adopted. Since then, the sheriff's badge has evolved to include 5, 6 or 7-pointed stars.

Today, most sheriffs use a star shape badge, while police officers use a shield or an oval badge. Federal agencies often use plaques with an eagle on the shield.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
