(Disneyland, c.1955) An incredibly rare Fireman's badge for the Santa Fe & Disneyland Railroad. The Fireman was responsible for tending the boilers on the steam engine and typically would sit to the left of the Conductor. The metal badge has a curved shape that bulges outward slightly, and there are blue accents in the background and within the letters themselves. The pin on the reverse still clasps and functions well. The badge is believed to have been designed to be worn on the chest, and this rare artifact is the first of its kind we have ever seen offered publicly. Measuring 1.75" in diameter, the badge is in very good condition with some surface scuffs from use and a few small worn areas in the blue color.
