Having difficulty tracing this maker's mark, have found similar, but not exact. Any insight appreciated!

This mark does not appear in any of the published references which cover Birmingham sponsors' marks. Your hallmark has the h date letter for 1907 and I have previously seen it with a 1911 hallmark. The Birmingham Assay Office keep full records and would of course be able to provide an identification if you were to contact them.

Hi,
As said above, R.J. has not been identified. The mark appears here, but no name; just a remark it was seen on a 1911 vesta case.
