Family history as told to me is that this size 9 thimble belonged to a 3x Great Aunt, is from the mid 1800's and 18kt gold. I was given it to add to a thimble collection I once had but was unfortunately stolen except for this and a couple of others that I had luckily put away for safe keeping.
This is a very light thin thimble weighing approx. 3 gram. No gold kt stamp is visible but the jeweler was able to identify a mark inside at the top that looks like the Simons Brothers mark. The acid test for gold was inconclusive
