I recently came across this fun tie, whose pattern features various archaeological dig tools. The smaller white label reads: "Tools" National Museum of American History.

I originally thought this might have been part of an older staff uniform, but then realized it was probably just a tie sold in the gift shop, maybe even just a few years ago...

Any ideas or tips on this guy?

    I'm sorry Hunter I hate wearing ties so the most you get is a like on this one ;-)

    Thanks Walksoft & Bellin - they're certainly not for everyone. :)

    Kevin, I've got an old round tuit I've been meaning to give you! It looks more like an ugly lime-green potholder than a wooden nickel, but I think the value is pretty much equivalent.

    Thanks all for the loves!

    Those wrenches are great Kerry! I've got to work on my tie tack collection - I've got around 50 great ties but only a handful of tacks. One more thing to pick for ;)

    Thanks Hunter, I have several Tacks and clips, not even close to Kevin's #, but have way more than Ties, Total of 4 Ties, two of which were issued from Uncle Sam.
