Treasure Chest Thursday - Sheriff's Badge

My brother-in-law was looking through an old toolbox of my Dad's when he discovered a sheriff's badge! It was my great-grandfather Charles Creeden's badge when he was Sheriff of Mercer County, Ohio from 1923-1927. The badge is still quite shiny and in good condition. What a find!
