Vintage Hardware Themed Tiepins & Clips

Sometime during last year's junking season I netted all of these.  Any of you who sell junk on-line or in a brick-and-mortar store know that vintage tie pins / tie clips DO NOT SELL.  The thrift stores don't even want them.  If they are not signed by a designer they are of no value.

Then I started seeing some familiar shapes.
This fishing pole, shovel and thermometer are all tie clips...

Perfect little miniature locks...

The hardware store this guy worked for...

Three different "Mack" tie pins -- love the fireman dog...

Clock tie clip and pin...

Two Stanley tools and a GE blade.
So detailed...

Teensy Keys...

And mini shotgun shell pins...
All heading to ebay.
