Wonderful, early 20th century, possibly pre-statehood Red’s Taxi Driver hat badge from the notorious, late “old west” frontier town of Perry, Oklahoma. The badge shows an antique automobile and surrounding it reads: “RED’S TAXI PERRY, OKLA.”
Circa early 20th century
Approximately 1-3/4” x 1-3/4”
Engraved, stamped nickeled brass, solder, safety pin
This is from a taxi collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MAJJX15 LCIEX1/16
7+ (Very Fine+): The badge shows moderate to heavy wear, some of the nickel remains intact, overall very fine condition.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
