Vintage Railroad Uniform Tie Tack/ Lapel Pin - Santa Fe
Add a touch of vintage to your outfit with this tie tack made/ lapel pin made with a genuine steel antique railroad uniform button. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway company was first chartered in February 1859. Although the railway was named in part for the capital of New Mexico, its main line never reached there as the terrain made it too difficult to lay the necessary tracks (Santa Fe was ultimately served by a branch line from Lamy, New Mexico). The Santa Fe's first tracks reached the Kansas/Colorado state line in 1873, and connected to Pueblo, Colorado in 1876.
The uniform buttons in our collection date between 1880 and the 1970s.
