late 18th century through Civil War era STRAIGHT SHANK FISH HOOKS

We have acquired a small number of as new, unused, straight shank eyeless blindeye fish hooks and are offering them here in groupings of 4 for the collector who would like an example of the type for display. Though evidence confirms use as late as the Civil War, expert opinion is that in general, eyeless hooks, that is those with the flattened end or spade end and those with a simple straight shank and no eye, or with a tapered shank, blindeye, were on their way out in the 1850s. A neat little grouping to set in with any earlier 19th century through Civil War era grouping without spending lots of money.
