Antique The Army and Navy Needle Book


This New York version of The Army and Navy Needle Book is marked Japan on the front cover and on the needle packet labels. The back has "'Yankee Doodle' The Spirit of '76."

Needles include:

Four needles in the eight packet.
Nothing in the one-fifth packet.
Five needles in the six packet.
Five needles in the seven packet.

There are five needles on the right hand side of the booklet.

All packets are off of the left hand side of the booklet but still have their foil inside with needles except for the one fifth size's packet, which is empty and still attached to the booklet. I believe there once was a packet on the right hand side of the booklet to the left of the needles. Also, the six size label is off of the packet.

Please note the tear on the back of the booklet at the bottom edge.

The measurements are 4 ⅞" x 2 ⅛".

I'm estimating the age of this booklet as being from the early 1900s as the USS New York was launched in 1914, and I believe the artwork was an attempt at patriotism during the early part of WWI. It's difficult to find much information about needle booklets although they're highly collectible.

Thank you for looking.
