Lot Of 3 "ancient" Metal Thimbles,metal Detector Finds In Britain, :
Lot of 3 really,really old metal thimbles. I'd only be guessing that they are somewhere in the 1700-1800s....a wide range, but far,far removed from current thimbles.
CONDITION....metal,of course. All have slight damage....if you look inside two of them, you can see where they have worn through in one area, but not too damaged to prevent use of them. Not that they will fit you.....two are very small and just go on the tip of my little finger and only on the very tip and even then by pushing. You can see the two damaged spots clearly in the first photo.
The largest one is closer in size to a modern thimble, but is certainly very old.
NOTE that these have been buried for maybe 200-300 years. They are for your collection and historical interest, not for a nice new shiny thimble to wear.You receive the exact ones in the photos.
Postage is FREE within Australia. Unfortunately postage internationally would cost me $17.70. I am happy to sell internationally,but you'd have to contribute $12.00 to the cost.
