Recently won an E-bay auction for a set of thimbles, which included these old advertising thimbles, 11 for $11 ,delivered to the door, not a bad go, as the Coke books @$40!.
Too bad there is'nt a Petretti's style book for all things vintage, as I've no idea what the others are worth,not that it matters I guess.
There is a Superior Chevrolet, 562 E. Wash.St.IndianapolisLL673,
TheFamily Fraternity Woodmen of the World, Omaha ,Nebraska,
andHerald Life Insc.Jacksonville, Florida.
This started as an inherited collection, but once I saw a Coca-cola version thimble, I knew I'd need to add to it!

    There are lots of thimble collector sites online. We used to collect them and selling off duplicates was really easy. Somewhere we still have a few packed away. Thanks for sharing these.

    Wow, this is a great collection, and love the showcase for them also. I have seen some beautiful gold ones years ago and I bet you must have some.

    I remember that twilight zone about the girl in the department store and the thimble for her mother, and it turns out she was a Mannequin.
