Collectable antique packets of sewing needles

I've often been asked on the website by needle packet collectors if I sell packets of old needles. The answer is, yes I do, but usually at the fairs.
So here today is a collection for all of the needle packet collectors everywhere.
There is one very special one. 
This packet of needles is really unique , so unusual. On one side as can be seen is a post card addressed to G S Edmonstone . Ladies outfitters & Baby linen Establishment, 50 Alfreton Road Nottingham - Agent for Pullars Dye works Perth. Posted Redditch Nov 1883.
It is a one penny needle wrapper made by Wm Allwood and sons. Minerva needle works, Alcester, Redditch.

This packet and the others shown will be listed tomorrow, Wednesday at 7am BST
