A pair of Salt Lake City Railroad // Electric Car Conductor’s badges. These trolly car badges date from 1872 to 1901. The front sides of these badges are both numbered 92. We believe one badge would be a uniform badge and the other a hat badge, for the same employee. Both badges were uncovered at a Salt Lake City construction site, with a metal detector. The larger badge is back marked “HOOLE MF’G CO. // 53 // GT JONES ST.”, and the smaller one is back marked “J.C. MURPHY & CO. // MAKERS // SALT LAKE”.
Dimensions: 2.26″ x 1.95″ and 1.58″ x 1.38″
Condition: Lightly corroded overall – Attaching pins and hardware missing – Paint within face lettering nearly all intact – Back marks are a bit weak in areas.
