Description

Very interesting, old specimen with a bunch of antique to recent labels. The oldest label surely dates back from before the label of the Mineralogical Institute of Hamburg from 1919. I guess it's OK to say it's from the end of the nineteenth century - at least. Mining in Jachymov dates back to 1510.

Hamburg label repaired. All labels were later numbered on the back.
