Tin Man Made of Scrap

With this 10-foot tall tin man holding his hand in the air at the entrance to Marlin Mobile Home Community, you'd have no excuse for missing the speed limit sign in his other hand. He has a very serious expression on his face and a perky little belt. Is he wearing a badge or a pocket tee?
