This is an excellent hat badge from the Union Pacific Railroad. It apparently was worn on the hat or cap of an employee working as a Brakeman. The metal is brass, with a silver color nickel finish. With a strongly stamped maker mark from the American Railway Supply Company, it would be a great addition to any collection.

SIZE is approximately 4 inches long and 1 inch tall.

CONDITION is excellent. There are overall very lightest signs of use (tiny shallow scratches and dings) but absolutely no splits, twists or other metal damage. The surface is an attractive shiny, silvery color that contrasts very appealingly with the black lettering. The black fill in the letters is only slightly worn; there is some loss that is not terribly evident.

We especially like the pale "halos" around the holes, proof positive it was actually used on a hat.
