Lot #211 - Fitchburg Railroad Station Agent Hat Badge

 
 

 

 ba16
Railroad Fitchburg 
Size 4" by 1 1/8"
Condition Very Good

This badge must be 111 years old. The Boston & Maine took over the Fitchburg in 1900. The Fitchburg Railroad is known for having a few styles of hat badges. This "Notch Top" is a standard design for the Fitchburg. It measures 4" long and it is 1 1/8" tall. The front was cleaned up at some point. The reverse shows real crud from actual use and the reverse has an old solder blob in the center. This is a nice occupation from a long gone railroad. Very Good condition.
