Charity Shop Vintage Zippers

I always keep a lookout for vintage zippers to use in the jackets I make. I don’t like taking clothes apart to harvest the zippers, so I’m always happy when I stumble on a charity shop with a big box of zippers and buttons, etc. I came across such a haul last week. I got a bunch of separating zippers, and another pile of non-separating. Here are the separating ones, all god old British brands. Most of these seem to be from the 40s or early 50s. They’re all good lengths for jacket closure. The last picture is of a few Lightning zippers I’ve bought previously, still in their packets.
