Hobo Sign Brass Pin (smooth surface with dark patina)


At the time of the Great Depression in America, many people traveled across the country -usually by train- to find work. Since they had to find food to eat and avoid dangers on their adventures, these people were said to have used a system of symbols to communicate with-and warn of dangers-to their bindlestiff bearing comrades.
This series of pins focuses not only on railroad history, but also on certain issues such as communication and the marginalization of people.

These pins consists of etched brass metal and a soldered stainless-steel pin back, with a sealed patina finish. The item you choose from the photo is the exact item you will receive. Approximate sizes are listed with titles below.
