Old anchors- 100m ; bronze

I found some cool anchors, do we have a resident anchor expert here by chance?

My research says the 100m is for earliest subs, while the bronze 200m one predates the steel 200m one, therefore the bronze one is for early 60s gilt subs, up through red subs. Itís been said that red subs bought in USA market came within bronze one...can anyone confirm?

Thanks

Too cool!

Not sure if anchors existed for 6204 and 6205, but the 100M anchor would be correct for 6536, 6536-1, and 5508.

Too cool. Hope to find one someday.

I believe they are for gold watches. The gold anchor looks like one that came with my gold Sub set.

Itís not gold, itís copper color. Hereís a pic to show the contrast to gold tone.

I am pretty sure that 200 bronze copper anchor came with the gold 1680 meters first.
