I have two silver hip flasks and I am trying to research as much as I possibly can about them. They are from the UK but I don't know where they might have been produced or what sort of date they might be. Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Rosie

Hi Roise,

Thanks for joining us on silver-collector.com.

In order to tell you more about the hallmarks, we need a closer, better picture of them.

Try reading through the section on photography to get some tips on how to photograph hallmarks. Or you can try this trick....

good luck!

Hi Rosie,
If you can't get a better pic of the marks, then please just describe them to me and I will do my best to tell you when they were made.


Best regards
Daniel Franks
