UPRR - Union Pacific Railroad Dark Blue Pillbox Style Conductor Hat, Size: 7 1/8
Item #: 5078 This is a winter Union Pacific Railroad conductor hat, in dark blue wool, with black grosgrain trim, in excellent condition. The hat is vintage 1970-71 period, with a black patent leather brim, in the pillbox style. The hat has black braid, with a silver U.P. button on either side and a black and gold "Conductor" hat badge in the center, attached by tiny brass screws. There is a tiny hole centered over the conductor badge, left from a service badge no doubt. The hat has the original paper manufacturer label in a plastic sleeve inside, with "A.G. Meier Uniform Co. 1060 W. Adams Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607", and the owner's name, "R.T. Kello, size 7 1/8, 12-13-71". The order date of 10/1/70, and order number 103799 appear at the bottom of the label. This very fine Union Pacific conductor hat would be a great addition to any collection. And, no...our conductor "Oscar" is not for sale!
