On Mar-20-13 at 11:01:08 PDT, seller added the following information:There was some skepticism as to the authenticity of the GOLD CONTENT in the 2 victorian thimbles.
The member naryavilya was sarcastically mocking my listing. They also threatened to turn me into a turrman's list what ever the heck that is. I almost ended the listing.
I went back to the local Jewelry and Coin Exchange and had them tested again (doing no damage to the thimbles). In fact they are solid 10kt gold,and offered me $140.00 in scrap based in the rate of exchange as of march 20th,2013. How ever I did not want them destroyed, and thought they had mor intrinsic value.
I list things with the utmust integrity, and take pride doing so.
