The 1888 Mexican peso used to make this Ranger star was darn near worn out by the time it was converted into a badge, suggesting the production of the badge around 1900… And considerable silver material might have been removed, especially from the reverse side, to recycle for other jewelry, by the maker. The pin is a spring “safety pin” type, which eventually fell out of favor.
