Romania order of the Crown Type II

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all, I've just added this Commander class type II to my growing collection, could any of the experts decipher to markings? I've made them as clear as I can, any help appreciated

 

regards

edit, just for comparison with my type I, never realise until side by side, it's considerably smaller

A nice Weiss example. The markings are "589-36", "HW" and the national mark for silver.

Hi, thanks for theexplanation, "HW" would be for Hermann Weiss, the national mark for silver is logical, what would the 589-36 signify?

The jeweller's first name was Heinrich and 589-36 was some sort of serial/production number.
