Dad retired and we are clearing out his shop and came across this gem!

Rare Vintage U.S. Post Office Letter Carrier Eagle Hat Badge, 1960- #387 Sacramento, CA

1922-1982 Vintage U.S. Post Office Letter Carrier Eagle Hat Badge, RARE #225 Red back ground.

In 1922, the eagle badge replaced the earlier versions. The Postal Laws and Regulations initially specified that the words “U.S. POST OFFICE” would appear along the top of the badge and that the name of the Post Office and state would appear along the bottom.

By 1960, the Postal Manual specified that the words “LETTER CARRIER” and "Special Delivery
Messenger " would appear along the bottom. The pin closure (top row, right) was replaced by a tack and screw post closure in 1968.

The 1975 Postal Manual specified that badges were to be displayed on the headgear when worn (headgear became optional in 1972). When no headgear was worn, the badge was to be placed over the left breast of the outside garment, or, if this was not practicable, in plain view on the belt or as directed.

Photographs of letter carriers in the late 1970s show that a badge was not always worn. Since 1982, letter carriers have not been required to wear numbered badges.

Badge was kept in a acrylic display case and is in a plastic sleeve.
