    ...And finally a beautiful silver Thimble, I can't believe how nice it is, not squashed, or even a dent. I believe this is not very old, maybe early to mid 1900's, It does have Silver Hallmark inside and "Made in the USA" but still a beauty.

    More great finds from that place. Solid! Silver thimbles are on the bucket list of many, so consider yourself lucky! I checked that one off just last year.
