This brass hat badge is a fine example of a newer one from the Long Island Railroad. The occupation is Assistant Conductor (number 4578).

Condition is excellent with only the lightest signs of use. Being bright brass, it shows "everything" and there are some lightest surface marks, hard to see on the front but more apparent on the back with some light surface scuffing.

The lettering and circle around the tiny locomotive cameo are an attractive medium blue, with white coming from the smokestack. All this is enamel, in wonderful condition with NO chipping or loss.

On the back there is no maker marking but we guarantee this badge is authentic. It was made to mount to a cap or hat with two threaded posts, on which two toothed wheels screw down tightly to hold it firmly in place. These are in perfect working condition.

Now is the time to find newer railway memorabilia from roads like this before it becomes scarce. No good collection is complete without these later relics.

Beginning in 1834, the LIRR boasts one of the longest operating histories of American railroads (it was operated by the Pennsylvania railroad between 1928 and 1949). It is headquartered on Long Island in Jamaica, New York.
