Hi and welcome to the forum. Thanks for persisting with the images!

J.C is Joseph Cook, a known maker of thimbles, and the date letter is, I believe, "n" for 1887. It could also possibly be "u" for 1894, but I think that is unlikely as by then Joseph Cook had become Joseph Cook and Son and was using a "J.C&S" mark.

Thank you, is the Anchor on its side significant as I’ve only seen them vertical in my research.

Birmingham hallmarks always had the anchor sideways from 1860 to 1899 inclusive (and also from 1999 onwards). So not significant - that's just how it was.
