    I was hoping somebody could assist me with the hallmark date on my Grandfather's cigarette case that I found whilst going through some boxes today.

    I know everything else from the marks but I'm having slight trouble with the date as I'm not sure if it's 1917 or 1942

    Thanks.

    So the consensus is 1942?
