    American Badge Co. Chicago, not a badge what is it?

    Found this over the summer and never figured out what it was or went to what. The site this was found at basically only has seen activity during the turn of the 1900 century. So I am figuring this item is early 1900's along with everything else I found. Looked up and can't find much at all on this company also what is it? Part of a trophy.

    Neat find It may be the top to a Theodore Roosevelt campaign walking stick.

    Theodore Roosevelt: Campaign Walking Stick.... Political3D & Other | Lot #47841 | Heritage Auctions

    Theodore Roosevelt: Campaign Walking Stick. The metal knob has a 1.5" brass rimmed, sepia celluloid portrait button of Roosevelt affixed to the top. The wooden shaft is 32" from the top of the knob to the brass ferrule. The knob is marked, "American Badge Co. / Chicago". The celluloid is cracked and has light foxing, else very good.

    Wow that's pretty cool! Part of a Theodore Roosevelt campaign walking stick. Like I said most all other finds from site did date to early 1900's. Well I think you nailed this one Bramblefind, thanks for the help!

    I have been thinking about this one. You would think Teddy Roosevelt would of indorsed a bigger stick.. But it is possible he had not yet made the speech when this was made.
