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
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.
How do i tell what grade silver it is ?
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.

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…
Anyone any further thoughts on this item ?
