Lincoln's Hat is a headwear item that can be found in the Museum of American History.


From the Museum of History Lower Halls, enter the Offices. Once the player goes upstairs, turn right and enter the first room on the right. It should be the northwestern room. It will be filled with rubble; the hat is slightly to the left, by a large desk. The hat is lying at the floor about 2-3 meters from the room entrance on the left - quite easy to miss in the darkness, so put on your PipBoy light.

You can either fall down to the room from above when you go upstairs or get there directly from the offices.

The intelligence bonus gives +2 to the Science, Medicine, and Repair skills (assuming you do not already have a 10 intelligence). This is the only headgear other than Button's Wig that gives bonuses to these skills.

The hat is part of the unmarked Lincoln's Profit Margins quest.


  • Reverse-pickpocketing this onto a trader for added repair skill does not work. It appears that NPCs are immune to the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. skill boosts that are provided by this item.
  • Worn with the Grimy Pre-War Businesswear, and using Lincoln's facial hair, you can make yourself look slightly like Lincoln himself.
  • If you have Chinese Stealth Armor equipped, you can wear Lincoln's Hat and other hats at the same time. The effects of both items do stack.
