1908
U.S . Deputy
Marshall's Badge
from Fairbanks, Alaska

We are offering one of the best little Alaska collections that we have ever seen.
 
Fred Schaupp was a pioneer Alaskan who was all over the Territory, and earlier, the District of Alaska.
Early Alaska law enforcement badges are exceedingly rare, this one dates from pre-territorial days!

      Fred Schaupp is listed in the following Polk's Alaska Yukon Gazetteers:
1903  Nome   tinner with J.F. Giese
                                    1905  Fairbanks 1st. Ave, cor Lacey   mnfr of sheet metal.
                       1907  Fairbanks  123 8th Ave.   sheet metal works
            1909-1910  Fairbanks  123 8th Ave.   tinner
        1911-1912  Chitina   tinsmith (see photo)

Fred Schaupp's badge includes the most impeccable provenance.
Included in the collection are all of the items seen in these scans.
To see these pictures, see this listing under Fairbanks in my Vintage category.
