I have searched and searched for the correct manufacturer of this thimble. I am assuming northern u.s. hand made coin silver due to its age. Thanks friends!

Sorry, but I think the thimble is much younger. In my opinion, the code of year is "S7", i.e. 1920.

Hi Ubaranda,
Nothing to be sorry about I believe you to be right!

Cheers,
