CB&QRR - Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Black Enameled Nickel Rectangular Brakeman Hat
Item #: 4981N
Here is a nice Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad (CB&Q or Burlington) hat badge in serif letters that will show nicely in your collection. This is a rectangular nickel finished over brass brakeman hat badge, and is not factory hallmarked. It is inlaid on the front in black enameled serif letters “Brakeman, C.B.&Q.R.R.”. It does have some nickel wear in spots from years of use, but overall a nice piece. It is 3 ½” long, and ¾” wide. This is a fine collectible from a Midwest railroad that came into Colorado, and one to proudly display with your railroadiana collection!
