Cap Badge of the Kursk-Kharkov-Sevastopol Railroad ("Курско- Харьковско-Севастопольская железная дорога"), 1896 - 1907.

In brass, measures 45.2 mm tall x 51.2 mm wide. Brass badge with Imperial Russian eagle which is a separate superimposed part and the axe / anchor symbol associated with Russian railroads. Scroll at bottom bears the abbreviated name of the railway. There were once loops on the reverse - now broken - for fastening the badge to a cap with a cotter pin.

In very good overall condition. Beside the broken attachment loops, the badge is extremely well-preserved. There is no noticeable corrosion, and the details of the eagle and inscription are exceptionally well-preserv

In very good overall condition. Beside the broken attachment loops, the badge is extremely well-preserved. There is no noticeable corrosion, and the details of the eagle and inscription are exceptionally well-preserved and crisp. Attractive even toning throughout without blemishes.

The Kursk-Kharkov-Sevastopol Railroad received its name in 1896 after the gradual expansion of railroad tracks connected the key cities in southern areas of the Russian Empire. In 1907, the railroad linked with the Kharkov - Nikolayev Line and the resulting larger railway network received the new name Southern Railroads - which it holds to this day in slightly changed form. The hat badge with Kursk- Kharkov-Sevastopol name was used for only a short time and it is therefore quite scarce.
