Please remember that these are very old socks.
They were made 60 years ago, during a time of post-war austerity, and they were designed to be practical and affordable rather than comfortable or beautiful.
They had a reputation for being hard-wearing, and some people found them itchy.
Unused, and clipped together as a pair with the original metal clips.
These socks are 60 years old, and they need to be handled with care.
There is no visible damage, but they aren't very stretchy any more.
If you wish to wear them, they will need to be hand-washed first.
There is no damage visible, but there may be some faint marks from storage.
The metal clips have rusted, and if you want to remove them, they may leave rust spots on the socks.
