The Sheriff’s Office of Montgomery County, Alabama, has issued a challenge coin that features a magnifying glass and a deerstalker cap within the design on the coin’s reverse. Not the most Sherlockian of designs, but just enough to be of interest to us.

OBVERSE: MONTGOMERY COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE / (Montgomery County Sheriff badge superimposed on the Alabama flag) / CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS DIVISION

REVERSE: (symbol) PRIDE (symbol) INTEGRITY (symbol) GUTS / CRIME SCENE (fingerprint and outline of a body) (sheriff line police tape) INVESTIGATIONS (deerstalker cap, magnifying glass and scales of justice) / (bottle of pills, marijuana leaf and a hypodermic needle) NARCOTICS

50mm, Round, Hardened Enamel

It appears that the online auction site of eBay would be your best course of action if you were interested in purchasing this challenge coin.
