Braids and Elastic
Vintage elastic 1960s 1970s Black 10-cord New Green Crescent brand Haberdashery
Vintage black elastic.
10 cord (5/16 inch 9 mm wide approx)
New Green Crescent brand.
The weight is 360g including the card.
Made in England.
This elastic is unsold shop stock, on its original card.
The length is printed in yards as well as metres, so presumably it was made in the late 1960s or 1970s.
There is a "new decimal money" price hand-written on the card - £0.05.
This is an opened pack of elastic. It is unsold shop stock, and is partly used.
It is probably around half a century old, and is sold purely for historical interest.
Although it seems to be in good condition, there are a few small frays (possibly from the pin which has been used to secure the loose end?).
I don't suppose it would last very long in normal use, and I certainly wouldn't recommend boiling it!
I have not measured how much elastic is left on the card.
The pack originally held 72 yards, so obviously it is less than that.
