Re: Pan American (World) Airways - Exclusive Pattern

Lucky news from a Facebook page...this seems to be the hire date for an international flight attendant working through 1991 and now living in this area. Perhaps these were given to new hires. Anyway, free museum info., enjoy your flight: http://www.everythingpanam.com/1960s_multi_Pres.html

Pan American (World) Airways - Exclusive Pattern

Twin demi coffee spoons from this 707 jet era where one has been engraved with a date of October 25 1965, for an unknown reason, but effectively converting this inflight service ware to a souvenir or commemorative of some sort. The tarnish was originally equal on both pieces, so there is no doubt th...

Re: Silver beaker unknown markers

And Dendriet did indicate the system was in use before 1942, but it is not clear if he was referencing only the standard mark or also the use of the barrel shape for the responsibility party lozenge.

Re: Silver beaker unknown markers

I wouldn't make the leap to any conclusions on these marks quite yet, as it may only prove coincidental to what was noted in the link. Here is the site information showing Belgium requiring the barrel shape after 1942, but it's an unregulated system so it's hard to be sure about the "3" ma...

London Date Letter For 1866

Looking at the various date letter charts, they seem to be very accurate in minor details. However, here is a second example of Henry John Lias & Son (see prior goblet) having a small "l" with a slight added difference to the back left side half-way down. Such is noted on the small &qu...

Re: Silver beaker unknown markers

Belgium (unofficially applied) barrel mark for responsibility and 3rd standard (.800) but without the box outline? See Dendriet comments in here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=55363&p=177845&hilit=belgium+barrel&sid=4bc875efc9d04b822bbe1734db232108#p177845

Having its' pattern origins in the Par Plate line, this Onieda Hotel Plate fork carries a topmark for the Fabulous Flamingo resort hotel and casino opened in December 1946. But it was not until the re-opening of March 1947 that the word Fabulous was applied to the remodeled hotspot with the completi...

Not a conclusion, but until we get more, just throwing out the possibility of Benjamin Pierpont (WEV might know more on this):
