This is a Perthshire paperweight made from 1978 onwards. Depending on the diameter of the weight it is either a PP1 or a PP2 with PP1 being large version and PP2 a medium version.

Hi.

If it is really 3.5 inch diameter it is unusually large.  How did you measure the diameter?

Yes - I did think 3.5 was rather large. That would normally be classed as a magnum. PP1 was usually between 2.5" and 3" in diameter and PP2 up to 2.5" diameter. Never heard of a PP1 magnum.
