Hobo Sign Brass Pin (deep texture)


At the time of the Great Depression in America, many people traveled across the country-usually by train-to find work. Since they have 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.

Pins are brass sheet (one in rear with with copper electroforming) and stainless steel pin backs, with a sealed patina finish. Each pin is unique in its final look, and the one you choose from the photo is the exact work you will receive. Approximate size sizes are listed below with each pin's title.
