Vintage find of the day

Yesterday I went to my local antique store for a bit of lace trim, and found these pinking shears instead. They were in the original Craftsman box, seemingly unused, and they even had the original receipt from 1951 in the box (they cost $5.65 back then)! They are sharp and shiny and I needed pinking shears, anyway. I think they were a steal for $12.00. Oh, happy day!
