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:

IN MOViE '2001

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.

Since the way color is displayed on a screen varies from one monitor to another, there may be slight color variations compared to what your monitor displays.
