height 4 inches excluding handle, top diameter 3 1/4 inches, weight 6.67 Troy ounces, marked Wm Glaze with another partially effaced mark as shown in fourth enlargement.

Those with long memories will recognize this as the same mug which sold at Charlton Hall, June 14 2009, (lot 730) for 1725.00. Please take a moment to look at those catalogue photos (see fifth enlargement), and you will notice a few dents and some surface abrasion presumably due to improper cleaning with steel wool. We have substantially removed the dents, and mitigated the abrasion with a technique known as "lapping" (which I learned from my Dad, who was a master tool and die maker) with successively finer compounds.

Though my aging hands are not happy about having done this task, your eyes will be, as this mug is now in very fine antique condition. As with all other coin silver mugs on our website, this one is guaranteed to make even Miller Light taste like a fine, craft-brewed pale ale!
