Black Continental Pins

Continental pins are made of stainless or black steel.They are all of a standard length (40mm) and differ in thickness only.  Size 00 is fine: Size 3 medium thickness and 6 is robust. Size 7 is a very strong pin and longer (52mm). Continental pins require greater depth of drawer or store box.  They are used internationally by museums and collectors.  The greater depth allows for several data labels, and keep specimens higher so perhaps more protected from pests. Sold in packets of 100
