This is a stunning silver toned presentation gift note pad for the desk of a friend of 60 years with the royal cypher of whom we believe to be Friedrich Franz.
The surface has a hammered appearance. The top of the note pad swings up on solid hinges. In the upper left hand corner we cypher of Friedrich Franz. In the lower right hand corner we see handsomely engraved “Deine 60er Kameraden”. Translated this would be for my comrade of sixty years.
On the back side of the note pad we see what appears to be a hallmark which we cannot make a determination. As we raise the lid we see a white pad of paper on which to make notes. This is NOT the original paper but is a modern day replacement and I presume that additional pads can be acquired to replace this one when needed from a stationary store.
Now for our puzzle. We’ll never know to whom this gift was bestowed. My dear readers you will have to answer that question….
