This is a rare 19th century United States Mail letter carrier hat badge from Massachusetts’ capital city, Boston. The badge is topped by a scallop shell design and is numbered 503.
About 2-3/8” height and 3” width.
One loop where hat pin would have been affixed (one is missing).
This is from a United States Post Office badge collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VGEX04
6+ (Fine—Very Fine): This badge has moderate and is missing one loop where a hat pin would attach but is in otherwise fine shape.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
