Van Dyke Restorer's is proud to offer a wide selection of antique cut nails to cover all your restoration projects. Originally, the terms 8d & 10d (a small d indicates penny) were used to denote prices of nails per hundred count. However, due to the fluctuations of prices this significance was lost & the terms were retained to indicate size. Example: 2d-1", 8d-2 1/2", 100d-8". Please note: due to the forging process the nail weight can vary, creating a considerable flunctuation in the amount of nails per pound.
