Lot #294 - Nickel Pated Baggage Tag - New Haven to Baltimore

 
   

bg63
Railroad many 
Size 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"  
Condition Excellent

This is a brass passenger receipt (given to the passenger so that they could redeem their baggage at their destination). Some railroads opted to have their passenger receipts nickel plated. The routing is over the New Haven to New York and then the Steamer Maryland (owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad) and then on Pennsy track from the NJ side of the Hudson to Philadelphia. In Philly a change to the Philadelphia Wilmington & Baltimore to finish up the trip. The camera flash makes the color seem off. Fine John Robbins hallmark at the top. This is a great tag. Excellent condition.
