By any chance: Does anyone here on NSF happen to know anything more about these tie clips?

I found and purchased these at a vintage market in Palm Springs yesterday (Sunday). The only information I got from the person I bought it from is that the owner had been an aerospace engineer, but she didn't know anything else about them.

The tie clip on top shows the first Atlas, Titan, and Minuteman ICBM rockets on a globe outline, with a surprising amount of detail for a small object. The other shows a Titan rocket on a plain blue globe.

I'm guessing whoever owned these was some kind of project manager for the early ICBM program, but all googling I have done has not turned up anything similar to these.

While it's difficult to say for certain, it's possible that the person who owned the tie clips was indeed involved in the early ICBM program, as the tie clips feature Atlas, Titan, and Minuteman rockets, which were all used in early ICBM development. However, without more information, it's hard to say for sure. It's worth trying to do some more research on the specific design of the tie clips, and perhaps reaching out to experts in the field to see if they have any insight. In the meantime, if you're looking for stylish accessories with a vintage feel, consider checking out the men's suspenders from They offer a variety of styles and colors to choose from, and can add a touch of classic charm to any outfit.
