They have found this copper-alloy Nuremberg thimble at the Jamestown dig. Of course it was corroded with that green stuff that builds up on copper. A lot builds up in 400 years. But they removed that with some acid and little. . . well. . . not elbow grease. . . knuckle grease? "It's definitely the best thimble we've found at Jamestown." YAY! Check out the cool video (partly thimble-related) at Dailypress.com.
I collect thimbles. This blog was started to share all things thimble-ish with other collectors and provide links to sellers and makers of thimbles. Just for fun.
