VINTAGE COPPER RIVETS AND BURS 1900'S

Today it's some really awesome rivets I picked up.
I've got some projects coming up that needed some rivets and these fit the bill perfectly.
These have to be from the early 1900's.   I bought two boxes.  One pound, one half pound.
The half pound box for belts are really cool.
Check this out... Some sizes have little anchors on the back and others have stars!  What a cool touch for belt!
Plus the boxes are almost as cool as what's inside.
If you do projects, it's nice to have something vintage in them, if you're a vintage gear guy like me.  And now when I make something with these, I know it's got a rivet and bur that's probably 100 years old...

  1. Those are super-cool. I've made a couple of pairs of selvage jeans and would love to find some like that. If you find you have too many...
