This is a very hard to find employee ID badge for a worker at the Steelton & Highspire Rail Road which serviced the Bethlehem Steel Plant in Steelton, Pa. This small RR company transferred steel from the steel plant to Highspire, Pa. railroad connections to be shipped to armament plants all over the USA during WW2. The badge is inscribed on the reverse with what to do if it is lost. It is 2 1/2" in length top to bottom. I would also think the the man's ID number "4" would possibly indicate being in a high position in the company. These are very scarce.
In used, but excellent condition, how often do these come up for sale. The tag is dated 1942 and by S. L. & M. Feathers LTD. Can't quite make out the size, aside from some soiling, the condition of the helmet is great, the soiling just gives it character! This helmet is also called a "Bungee" helmet.
I have two of these for sale and both are in excellent condition and look unissued. Rubber is still supple in mask and hose. Both masks have the fiberboard mask stiffeners for shipping present' They are both dated 1942. While they are both in near mint condition, one of them has some very slight fraying/wrinkling in one of the straps, I'll let that one go for $140. I do not have bags for these masks, so it's just the masks for sale. They are hard to come by in any condition, these would be hard to upgrade. UPDATE: The $150 mask has been sold!!
