(Disneyland, 1959) An original cast-member badge for the first Monorail pilots’ hats in 1959. These high quality emblems were designed to give the attraction pilots an air of authority, just as any rail or airline pilot would expect. The brass badge features enamel paint and two screw back fittings for attachment to a cap. Very scarce, as only a handful are known to have survived. The badge measures 1.25”x3.25” and is in good condition with some wear and missing paint. Beautifully presented in a custom designed frame with a limited edition photo of Walt Disney at the Monorail. Overall frame size 17.5”x15.5”.
