Philadelphia TOYNBEE Mysterious Tile Enamel Pin
Read the full title Philadelphia TOYNBEE Mysterious Tile Enamel Pin
High quality die cut enamel pin in six vibrant colors with puzzle piece edges mirroring the original design of this mysterious TOYNBEE tile. First discovered in Philadelphia in 1983 embedded in asphalt, these tiles have been found for decades in other parts of the country including Baltimore, Boston, DC, even the mid west and west coast.
TOYNBEE tiles inspired documentary filmmakers on a quest to uncover just who made these tiles in Philadelphia, and how other people around the country jumped on the TOYNBEE tile mystery. While some have different messages, the original theme remains the same:

Adorable pin with shiny turquoise edges, bright blue, red and yellow inlays and lots of detail, double butterfly clutch backing. Design inspired by my photographs around Philadelphia.

Beautiful pin, responsive seller!
I bought 2 pins. They’re high quality and just as pictured, if not better. Came wrapped very cute also!
There was a little mix up with the shipping, but it all got straightened out quickly. Love this pin and Twisted Philly!!
