Haha I just noticed. Btw there was some discussion awhile back about where thimbles show wear and tear. As you can see mine is worn down on the side closest to the thumb

"Oblique"

I haven't got wear yet. Guess I'd better git busy!

I must confess - that thimble is reserved for my steel strings

That explains the wear.  It also partly explains why you're so damn good- all that clawhammer practice goes straight to the chops bank.  Pity us poor natives of Scruggsville.  Stroke will always be a second language (for me anyway)
