Conical Caligae Hobnails
#31
Nope. I got lucky and found one nail in a box of the smaller type I got (not realizing there were larger ones), and that's how this all started.

Is there a photo of that one lonely hobnail? Maybe next to a ruler? I think that would help the vendors decide if they wanted to stock these.

Matt,

I don't see a photo of the one you have to sell, I see some of the Kalkriese ones... (I have a couple of better or different photos of those).

They're there- there are two pictures, one with a ruler above one of the nails in the sole, and one beside the Kalkriese that's shown as a angled side view- to show that the nails are just about the same size and shape as the real thing. The image is life sized (on my computer anyway), but here's a larger one for anyone who can't quite tell the details:

OK I had said 10 pounds for my group, I have about 8 lbs of interest, but I am confident with ten. I'll buy the extras and sell them later when people realize their grave mistake :twisted:

I was hoping to get more than 10, but it should probably rest there for us.

Must be over 50 pounds claimed so far. I think between Legio XX and George Metz we will probably account for 20 alone.

If we seem to be losing momentum in orders (and I'm not saying we are), I think many if not most on here would agree to pony up for one more pound if it meant the difference between having the nails or not having them at all.

I'll do my part. You can increase my order from 2 pounds up to 4 pounds.

Come on guys, give till it hurts.

I haven't yet, but will call the manufacturer tomorrow and see what real price I can hammer out with them- maybe that'll help Big Grin

That's the spirit! I'll match Marsvigilia's zeal and double my order likewise.
