Subject: Old dominoes

Hello,
I have just looked at you web page.  I found 19 old dominoes, ebony and
bone? with a brass pin in the middle of the piece.  How old would these
be and what was the function of the brass pin?  I know that it enables
the domino to spin if put face down on the table.  Was this another game
or a permutation of the standard game?  Appreciate any information you
can supply.
Cordially, Diane D'Arcy
