 ba03
Railroad Eastern  
Size 4 1/4" by 1 1/16"
Type slot mount ends
Condition Very Good

Very old hat badge from the Eastern Railroad with slot mount ends, ornate lettering with filigree, fancy tooling along edge and made by Mitchell in Boston. Measures 4 1/4" by 1 1/16". Nicely nickel plated with nice normal wear through the plating in a few spots lend authenticity to use on this pre-1886 badge. The Boston & Maine took over the Eastern in 1885 so this is a very old badge. The Mitchell hallmark is clear on the reverse.
