The title of the Badge is Special Deputy State Enforcement Officer. It is very old and I believe dates to just after Oklahoma became a State. The man it belonged to was Clayton Elijah Walker. The only info I could find on the internet about him was that he was possibly from Pond Creek and had a Homsteader filing in El Reno. I am hoping to put a face with the name and what his job title meant. I would appreciate any help.

The badge is round with a cut out star in the center. Has "Special Deputy" at top and "State Enforcement Officer" at bottom. Across the Star in the center it has "Oklahoma" Has old saddle pin on back. I would date it to be from 1907 to 1920 or so. Just trying to find any info on it that I can. Thanks!
