Mysterious, scratched signature on Perthshire Paperweight 1995
« on: September 18, 2012, 08:21:28 PM »
Since years I have these Perthshire paperweight in my collection date cane from the 1995th
Yesterday I first saw a very small engraving / signature at the bottom, but it is indecipherable.
Can someone help me?

I am sure: it is NOT a number!
Also sure: it is a name!

It's 342 which would be the issue number of this weight in a limited production rum.

Is the date cane definately 1995 as it's hard to read in the picture? As on checking the Mahoney & McClanahan Perthshire book this pattern does not seem to be from 1995.

Depending on the size this will be a PP19 (large) or more likely a PP19A (small), both in production in 1995, and limited editions (actual numbers unknown). So I would assume the writing in question is the edition number.

I read 342 clearly.
Nice. I like these.
