Russian Silver Cigarette Case Marked 84.:
This is an old Russian silver cigarette case. It is inscribed with the date, July 30, 1912. This may be the day it was made or maybe it is a commemoration piece or anniversary gift for that date. The inscription is Russian and my Russian friend tells me that roughly translates to: "To Remember". So perhaps they were remembering that date.It is silver as shown by the stamp on the inside: "84". I believe this means the box is 84/96ths or .875 pure silver.It weighs 125 Grams which converts to 4.02 troy ounces. 4.02 x .875 = 3.5 ozt of pure silver
