This plumb bob has been in the family for as long as i can remember. No markings on it. I've seen similar ones made by Boker in Germany. Anybody got any ideas on maker and/or year? Jimbo

    Did you remove the tip and see if there is a mark and number under it? I have a two pounder my dad gave me that is marked under the tip. Not sure where it is at the moment but your looks similar but smaller. On mine the black tip unscrews and can be changed/replaced.

    Gave it a try...won't budge. Even with a plier. Don't want to booger it up.
