This handmade one-of-a-kind (OOAK) tan Yates County NY brooch - pin is an upcycled antique piece of an 1878 H.H. Lloyd and Co., NY wood Railroad County Map of New York and the wood brooch - wearable history pin is a great idea for a timeless gift under $30! The Yates County NY brooch pin is 3/4" x 3/4" in size and has a locking pin back on the back. As the puzzle was from 1878, the paper pieces covering the wood map were in fragile condition. I've put a thin coat of resin on the top of each piece (to best preserve the antique and allow it to be worn) and then sealed the back and all sides with a matte acrylic sealer. Due to the map being over 130 years old, there are naturally signs of age and on some of the County pieces the top paper has some slight buckles that were too fragile to flatten out. The puzzle had been well loved over the decades, and it was not sitting unused in a sealed box. When you purchase this brooch pin, it will come packaged with card stock containing a picture of the puzzle title section and a brief history of the 1878 puzzle. This will let you, or the person you are giving this unique brooch to, know that this is a piece of American history that can be worn with pride.
