Smile Hi, I got this cigarette case at an estate sale. I have looked all over to try to match this hallmark. It is a sterling case. The hallmark looks like S.F. with a strange looking "f" When looking online, it comes up with San Francisco,Schultz & Fischer & more. But nothing matches this hallmark. Does anyone know what this is?

Description:It says STERLING 925 S.F.

No need for that - here is a picture - Am I right?
I even know the dimensions Very Happy 206 gram 8 cm x 12,5 cm long x 0,9cm

However if the picture is not the right one - here is the maker
jørgen Frandsen - silver smith from Vejle
It is danish.

ps - the halmark does not include the S - S stands for Silver. And 925 for purity - sterling silver.
Halmark is the 2 letters in monogram.
