I have a silver (I think) cup which was presented to Mercedes-Benz to mark the Truck Of The Year in 1985 by Truck Magazine.

It measures 90mm x 75mm

It was made by Jocyln Burton and is in its origional box.

See the images ive atatched

Look forward to hearing your thoughts on this item Smile

its great! To a car collector this is a great item, to a silver collector, its great!
Made in london, its a small peice of history. Depending on the weight/size it might be worth upwards of 60 pounds easily.

the lion passant (hallmark of a lion at the top picture) indicates it's sterling silver. Being 92.5% silver, which is standard grade.

Upwards of 60... ?

The silver beaker on the site below is valued at 550 and its very similar (although 5cm taller)..
And it dosnt have the historical/uniqueness value (if any) that mine has.

http://www.styles-silver.co.uk/acatalog/Jocelyn_BURTON.html

Also i'd esimate it weighs around 9-10oz and if it is .925 like mentioned above, weiging it in for scrap i could get in the reqion of 120 - 160...

I may be totally wrong though...
