New Watch Fobs Featuring Outrageous SubjectsBy

New Watch Fobs Featuring Outrageous Subjects

A Missouri wholesale company had a line of imitation and fantasy badges, fobs and diestamped metal novelties that included the figural fobs shown here. These new pieces are actually quite well made and show remarkable detail. Most, however, like the Alcatraz electric chair and the Dalton safe, are only cleverly created fantasy items without any authentic old counterparts. Wholesale prices for these pieces averaged $5 to $9.
