British Police Bobby Hat

The British Police Bobby Hat is an iconic piece of British Police history that is still worn today. Famous from British movies, television, and pictures of British police "Bobbys" on patrol, we were fortunate enough to secure a good supply of original Bobby hats complete with their original badges.

The British Police have used this style of hat, commonly known as either a Bobby Hat or Custodian Helmet since 1863. This would certainly make the Bobby Hat the longest continuously used style of hat for any modern police force after over 150 years of service. Now American collectors have an opportunity to own one of these world famous all original police hats, which we're now offering you the chance to purchase.

We have sorted each of the Bobby hats we've received and made sure they all have both the helmet badge and the top insignia. We've made sure that none of these custodian helmets have any defects or issues. You will not find a better deal on all original British Police Hats anywhere else, and you can even select the specific insignia you want for your collection. The sizing on each hat is going to run from a standard 57/58 with some being up to size 61. As the sizes are not marked on the hats, we cannot guarantee which size you will receive.

The following British Police agency hats are available, select which one you'd like and add it to your cart.
