Apologies for the dreadful photos! It’s quite worn and it’s making identifying who this belonged to challenging. Identifying its age will likely solve this which is really important to us as it could be incorporated into our wedding.
From what I can make out - looks like Samuel Hope? (SH) but could really be anything under certain lights!
Then what I think is a worn 9
A V font that looks a little fatter than the 1945 edition but I’m struggling as the moment I think I’ve got it, it can appear completely different if moved.
I hope someone is able to help solve this puzzle - it would be enormously appreciated!
