Title: Terminal fitting

Abstract: A terminal fitting (T) is formed by bending a metal plate material (Ta) punched out into a specified shape, and a facing surface (15S) of a resilient contact piece (15) facing a male tab (M) and a facing surface (20S) of a receiving plate (20) facing the male tab (M) are partially recessed within the range of the thickness of the metal plate material (Ta). Thus, thick portions (28A, 29A, 28B) and (29B) and thin portions (27A, 27B) are arranged alternately in a width direction orthogonal to an inserting direction of the male tab (M). Parts of the male tab (M) are held in contact with the thick portions (28A, 29A, 28B) and (29B) in the width direction.
