I think is is a Perthshire weight, a number of designs were produced with letter canes which related to the year of manufacture. I'll check my book later and confirm if it's in there.

Found it. Although the cane layout changes slightly over the years this is a Perthshire PP14, first made in 1969 last in 1994 using each letter of the alphabet, so your H was made in 1976. This was the only weight with each letter of the alphabet used.

Hi Steven

No problem, your challenge now though is to find the other 25 letters ;D

Cheers
