Honorably Retired 1947 Deputy Sheriff San Diego County #44, Gold Color/sterling For Sale

You are offerding on one authentic Sheriffs Badge. It says on a metal scroll across the top Honorably Retired. It also says Deputy Sheriff 44 San Diego County Calif. I was given this badge recently, from my mother, upon the death of her husband. He had retired from the San Diego Police Dept. many years ago. I made a number of appropriate phone calls to various police agencies before getting the approval to list this badge.
It measures 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" It is well worn. It appears to have a gold wash or plate as the metal is gold in appearance with dark blue enamel in the lettering. The blue enamel is wearing away in a few of the characters as I believe you can see in the pictures. Where it is wearing away the color of the metal showing thru appears copper colored. Which I do not understand because the badge is marked "Sterling" on the reverse??? It shows the company who made it "Ed Jones & Co. Oakland Cal" I also noticed that there is some copper color showing from behind the metal scroll which says retired. The entire badge and the pin on the front and back are gold in color as is the pin, which is still solidly affixed and working.
I really no nothing about badges and can only surmise that the retired scroll was added later than the date it was originally made and therefore is may not be sterling. On the back his name is inscribed and you can see the silver in the inscription which reads James T. Brown Retired 9-15-1947. It weighs 30.3 grams. I also checked it with a magnet and it has no pull what so ever. All I can really say is that it is authentic and describe what I see, as I am ignorant in this area. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
Thank you for your interest and as always I offer a money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied for any reason.
