Zinkers
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Mark's Mom
Description: Photos of Zinker headstones.To identify a marker as zinc, first look for bluish-gray to dark gray markers. The markers will be hollow, and you will be able to see seams along each corner. Another tell-tale sign of a "zinker" are the acorn-like screws in each jutting out from the inscription panels on the corners. Don't let a marker's size fool you, either. These could as tall as 14 feet!The markers were molded into metallic (but non-magnetic) sheets, shipped from the factory, and assembled by fusing the pieces together with hot zinc. When first cast, these markers were white, but over time they took on a bluish hue. These markers were made from about 1870 to 1914, and represent a small window of cemetery art. They were sold in catalogs and by traveling salesmen, and were available in the most common marker styles of the era, but were far less expensive than their counterparts in materials such as marble or granite.
