    Description

    James Arness "Gunsmoke" Badge. On the air from 1955 to 1975, "Gunsmoke" still stands as the longest-running prime time drama in the U.

This U.S. marshall's badge was one of several worn by Arness on the show, and was acquired from the CBS archives. It is in Excellent condition, with the initials "J.A." and "CBS" etched onto the back. A wonderful and unique piece of TV history.
