High quality base metal shield fobs with various Rock Island railroad & railway designs.  These fobs are styled after traditional, vintage watch fobs, and are accented with well done colored enamel work (where featured).  All large size fobs are created from a single, continuous piece of base metal and finished as per the photos above.

We have chosen to supply many of the fobs within this listing to accent our full line of pocket watch chains, however most of the small fob styles would also be appropriate as a charm on a lanyard or zip-pull, as a necklace pendant, or as a decorative focal piece on your DIY jewelry project.  Due to how some of the small fob pieces are crafted, a few of the styles we carry have a small spot of solder on the back.  Please contact us directly to inquire if the style(s) you are interested in have a solder mark or are a continuous piece.
We currently offer the following design variations.  Selecting from the dropdown choices above will provide a photo.  Click on any of the following options below for a detailed description of that variation.
