This is a great old 1950’s Tiger Motor Freight truck driver hat badge. The maker mark on the screwback reads out “HOOKFAST. PROVIDENCE R.I.” This is a heavily worn, very used badge
Approximately 2-5/8” x 2-3/8”
Chrome plated and enameled brass.
Obverse: “MOTOR FREIGHT.”
Reverse: “HOOKFAST. PROVIDENCE R.I.”
This is from a trucking collectibles collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MBEX16 LAHEX02/17
4+ (Very Good): This badge has heavy wear, the enamel is damaged in places.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original, and of the period stated.
