I wondered if anyone on here can help with an unusually marked thimble I just purchased. I have included a URL to a picture of the marks but I can't really research them as part of the word has rubbed away and another mark is a numeral 8 in a circle (Try googling that). I purchased it at auction and it was described as Charles Horner (CH). Now as far as I know Charles Horner was a silversmith but did he do plate? Or is the CH someone or something else and the auction description is incorrect? All I can confirm is that the thimble is not silver.(Magnet works on it).https://www.dropbox.com/s/4qxh9qq65gs1sad/DSCI0088.JPG?dl=0
Any help would be gratefully appreciated. One last note, thanks for one awesome forum. This is the first time I have had to post. Every time before, I have managed to find my answers with a bit of sweat and hard work. Sorry I failed this time.
