This tin chewing tobacco tag has a yellow background with a dark figure on the front wearing an ornate headdress with a red weapon in her left hand. She wears a yellow cloth around her waist and points to the right with her free hand. The text [Black Maria] is in red next to the figure. The tag back is blank metal, with two small protruding triangular shaped prongs, one at the top and at the bottom of the pin. Each prong is folded flat against the metal back.
