WEAR IT ! This classy tie clip is perfect for a rail fan! It is incredibly detailed but incredibly tiny, terrific with black enamel in gold tone metal details setting off the locomotive charging out of the necktie it's holding beneath.
The engine and tender are only ONE INCH long, mounted on a flat bar behind, with total length of 1-5/8 inches.
The only marking on this is LEGA stamped into the end of the clip on the underside.
CONDITION is excellent. It's strong, sound and straight -- perfect to dress up your necktie at a train show or railroad club meeting! The clamp is extremely strong and the teeth are large enough to hold any tie. The only thing we can fault is that the surface is worn here and there from being used. The gold tone has given way to silvery color metal underneath on some of the edges. To nitpick, there are a few very light surface scuffs on the flat bar behind the engine. Please remember that you're looking at monster computer enlargements in our listing -- these are almost impossible to see in real life !
