Hello,

thanks and kind regards,
Ringo

Hi -

there must be a typo by silvermistletoe:

The silversmith is Ehmke, Johann Heinrich, 1843-1880, * 1814 in Riga
Since 14.07.1843 Amtsmeister. 1855-1857 Ältermann. Worked until 10.02.1859 as taxator at the cuntry court. Died 1880.
The assayer is Ludwig Suk, on duty 1844-1847 and 1856-1884.
84 Zolotniki= 875/1000 silver content.

Regards
Postnikov
