Re: Morosov fork

Hi p_helm - your fork was made by an "overstamped" maker we will never know from St. Petersburg and by some clumsy fakers "upgraded" to a Morozov object. Our residental experts write much but not always correct. Here the known authentic different marks of I. and W. Morozov - both...

Re: 1865 teaspoon

Hi -

Probably the easiest way is to check from when until when Smirnov was in office. My records speak from 1865 to 1871. So it can not be 1863. But maybe there are more up-to-date documents ....

Re: Moscow cigarette case
