I just got awarded a bounty in this site, but I don't see any hat appearing.

Is there any?


There was a Bounty Hunter hat back in Winter Bash 2013, awarded for winning a bounty:

Unlike other hats, this one wasn't used again, I guess because it caused many people to award bounties just for sake of the hat, and not based on the actual contents.

    @gsamaras hehe, you probably didn't notice, but I let my daughter wear the hat. (See the bigger avatar in profile. ;)) (Also, feel free to jump into chat for as much off topic stuff as you want. :)) – ShaWiz Dec 12 '18 at 13:34

Unlikely. None of the regular hats have this trigger; it could be one of the secret hats, but most of those get awarded within an hour.

In the past, there have been hats for posting a bounty and also missing a bounty (e.g. This Is Fine from 2016) as a sort of consolation prize, but AFAIK never for being awarded a bounty (edit: see Shadow Wizard's answer, there was one back in 2013). The bonus reputation is enough of a reward already, I guess :)

  • Also missing is the hat called "24" (earn a gold badge) mentioned at the link you offered, tough to complain about secret hats that may no longer be offered; really rubs it in when there's a publicized hat for silver badges. I'm quite happy with my glasses, I probably wouldn't want the 24 hat in any event, so no value in writing up a posts on Meta to ask about what they can not say and I do not want/care. – Rob Dec 12 '18 at 12:54
