It can be 1674, 1774, 1874 or 1974 post a picture and I shall identify. Most likely its 1874 otherwise you can see that it new. However I have just bought a 1831 piece, seller asumed it to be 1931 due to its perfect condition. Here you see the 3 towers from 1774 http://sv1.letmehost.com/sv1/22/thumb...
