Hat Badges from the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh Railway.
The BR&P logo badges were first adopted over the strip badge in 1916, and were in use until the B&O takeover in January of 1932. The reason for the silver and gold agents' badges -- as told by a BR&P historian -- was that the agents were first issued silver badges but complained when conductors were issued gold badges, thus making the next issue of agents' badges gold!
