I think the one on the left with the cardboard would be a prewound embroidery bobbin. I haven't seen such a large hole before.

Those are the bobbins that fit my old Montgomery Ward Supreme Reversible Rotary...it was made by National in approx. 1949.

Very interesting. When looking at them I thought they might be for a vintage or antique machine.

Sure...I can always use more bobbins! And, with that BIG hole, they really don't hold a lot of thread. Send me a PM with your email & I'll go to Paypal to send you whatever you want for postage. And, thanks, Pat
