Toenail, 2.8 x 2.5 x 1.5 cm
Bristol Mine, Bristol, Connecticut, USA
Ex. Roland and Kathy Sherman
Superb patina and crystallography make this a very iconic specimen for the locale, circa mid 1800s.. Complete all around. Very 3-Dimensional. Just a stunning piece that looks carved, and which many consider one of the great thumbs from this locale. Ex Scott Williams and the Schortmanns collections (both dealers with private collections from the early to mid 1900s). From the Roland and Kathy Sherman thumbnail collection: they are competitive thumbnail exhibitors from Southern California, specializing in copper species. Joe Budd Photos
