I am very new to paperweight collecting. I wonder if you could cast your eye over the attached photo (if i manage to be able to attach it ?) I purchased it on eBay, It was described as a Caithness Moonbeam paperweight in Blue. Master Sample.
It is in pristine condition as has no scratches or wear to the base.
However it is not acid etched Caithness to base as I have seen on other paperweights. I know second were left unmarked, but to a novice's eye I cannot see anything wrong with it.
The wording to the base has been finely Scratched in. In the centre it does say Caithness, then around the outer edge it does say Moonbeam Blue and also Master Sample. I have googled the paperweight images and the paperweight is consistent with those images.
Did caithness mark master samples like this?
Fortunately if it is not as it should be, I did not pay a lot of money for it. And will enjoy it for what it is.
Over to you experts
