BRAT ID Online Retail

Terrill Major launched her military family-focused online store - BRAT ID - with a coin and pin set we custom-minted for her. She wanted a serial-numbered challenge coin and pin set to honor the difficult sacrifice made by the families of those that serve. As wife of a retired Army man, she understands the trials and hardships unique to the loved ones of active military.

Also understanding the importance of America-made products to those serving our country, Terrill came to us for a high-quality item made wholly in the U.S. Customers of BRAT ID adore the challenge coin and pin sets and asked Terrill to please not change the design.

In an email she sent to her rep, she raved: “They love the coins and pin sets and when I surveyed Brats to change the design, they said, don’t change it!…Thanks to the mint, I can push made-in-the-USA and high quality materials and workmanship…I concentrate on made-in-the-USA because Brats are loyal patriots and your product outshines what’s out there for Brats!”

The Tin Star

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?As the cattle industry and mining expanded into the American West, so too did the number of people on the frontier. A means of marking the local Peace Officer soon became necessary. Lack of local badge-makers meant such lawmen had to make their badges from materials at hand. The tin star evolved as a star cutout from the top or bottom of a tin can. Another popular method of making a badge was to use a coin and cut out a star from the center. The Texas Rangers cut a star shape from a coin: the 1800s Mexican Ocho Reales (pieces of eight). In 1962 the Rangers resumed this practice using the 1940s Mexican Cinco Peso coins.
