Preserving History through Limited Edition Collectible Thimbles
As all thimble collectors know, one of the great joys of collecting thimbles is being able to preserve history in one’s collection. The historical narrative captured in limited-edition collectible thimbles is often comprised of very recent events, such as those within the royal family and sporting events.
In 2013, thimbles commemorating the birth of baby George to William and Kate were must-haves for every collector of commemorative thimbles, and this year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow will likewise be commemorated in a limited-edition collector series.
Years from now, fellow collectors will be impressed to see the largest Commonwealth Games ever to be held in Scotland – and one of the biggest to date – represented in one’s collection, and thimbles from this limited run are certain to increase in value in the future.
Anniversaries of major historical events are also commemorated with collectible thimbles, and it is often an eye-opener to realize just how much time has passed since some of the major events of the 20th century took place.
Thimbles commemorating the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth were popular in 2013, and limited-edition thimbles marking the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landing at Normandy beach and the centennial of the outbreak of World War I will be available throughout 2014. World War I centennial thimbles will cater to the tastes of many different thimble collectors and include beaded and other types of textured thimbles and even a WWI infantry cat and sailor cat thimble. What a perfect gift for the thimble collector in your life who also loves cats!
