      I don't recognize the marks, but what a find!!
      Look up the countries which use 900 silver here:

      thank you, Efesgirl!!
    3. lentilka11, 3 years ago
      well, since I am from Slovakia, might be Czechoslovakia, then...
    4. lentilka11, 3 years ago
      Found no such mark, nor for neighbouring Hungary or Austria. Grrr.
    5. lentilka11, 3 years ago
      Nor Germany.

      I think this is two photographs. There seems to be one on the left that has a different colour, and with a little kind of brush stroke in the same place at the top. But I expect everyone saw that all ready. A beautiful silver cigarette case lentilka11.

      I dont understand, Gillian. This is the same silver case. I process the photos in Photoshop, thus there might be the color difference (due to shadow/higlight + color adjustment + sharpen tool). But the changes are only slight, to show the item, and I dont do heavy photoshopping. If you talk about the last photo (with hallmarks), yep, that photo is merged from 3 different photographs, to show the hallmarks from a different angle - since I can post only 4 pictures here.
