This handsome double tac pin adds steampunk style to your shirt, jacket, vest, hat, bag ..... or anywhere you would like to add a time travel accent.

All of the parts of this piece were made by the artist (excluding the tac & clutch backs). It is made of pewter and brass and measures about 2 inches x 1 inch. My signature is on the back.

This pin has a steampunk story:

"An extraordinary artifact was recently discovered in the ruins of a small farm structure in the rural lands to the South. Professor Maurice Jenkins, renowned tinkerer and reputed genius, was exploring the ruins after he became aware of reports that the structure had met its demise in a manor unexplainable by authorities. In a transaction between Jenkins and the farmer who owned the structure, Jenkins secured the exclusive rights to anything that he might find in the ruins (it is said that these rights set Jenkins back a tidy sum). With the assistance of two of his favorite students, Jenkins spent nearly two weeks at the site.

Little is known about the scope of the project, or the particulars of what Jenkins uncovered. What is knows is that one artifact has been put up for sale; an emblem of curious design. The good professor has said very little about the significance of the object, but others have offered their opinions.

Horatio Egbert Wallace PhD, offered this: "There are time travelers among us. Beings form worlds too complex for our understanding that come here for a time, and then leave. Weather it is that they come to observe us, to help us, or if they are simply hear on holiday - there is no denying that they are here. To recognize each other they ware certain symbols, insignias if you will, jewelry actually. I believe that what Jenkins has found is one of these insignias."

Others offer different opinions. On the subject, Jenkins is mute."
