Simons Bros of Philadelphia, PA was founded in 1839 by George Washington Simons, at that time, they were manufacturers of gold and silver thimbles and pencil cases.  The company grew rapidly from there, expanding to include many gold and silver items including (!) tooth and ear picks, earrings and finger rings.  The 14k gold band on this thimble has a series of panels with every other one being decorated.  This thimble must have a story because one of the panels had been engraved but the engraving has been savagely scratched off and there is one crack and a dent that is nearly cracked.  With all that, the thimble is still barely out of round and there are no punctures, the hallmark is visible with a magnifying glass in the apex of the thimble.
