Question New hose doesn't fit old outdoor spigot

I have an old outdoor water spigot (from the 1920's) with threads that do not match up with my new garden hose. Is there a connector piece I can buy so that I do not have to replace the spigot?

Have you tried another hose on the spigot? I only know of one thread type used on sillcocks so I'm wondering if it's your new hose. Maybe you just didn't get the threads aligned properly to start or they could be defective.

Threads on sillcock could have paint in them on back where you can't see. Try another hose.
