Police Badge 1890-1930
May is also national police month! This sheriff’s badge was used by Sheriff George Rhyne here in Gaston County between 1890-1930.
According to the donor, Sheriff Rhyne only lost one election. This was when the "republicans" took over the county. During the lapse of being a county sheriff, George became a U.S. Marshall and served as a "revenuer" in the North Carolina mountains. Marshall Rhyne was shot once by a moonshiner, but the bullet hit his Marshall’s badge and saved his life.
