Souvenir Friday- Early Disneyland Name Badges
Well, they really are not name badges but rather identification badges. The first name badges did not have names on them, rather the badges had employee numbers. The earliest were made out of brass and quite heavy. The early one from 1955 is numbered 268 which is quite a low number. The back of the badge is marked for the LA Stamp and Stationary company, the company which made many badges for police and fire departments over the years. The second badge is made out of aluminum and quite a bit lighter. The only cast members with names on their badges during this time period were the supervisors and managers. I have seen only a couple of those throughout the years.
