Состояние лучше чем очень хорошее
According to the collection files acquired in spring 1965 or 1966 from Mr. Ström in Finland.
The assayer’s letters "AP" can stand for A. Rikhter, who held this office from 1898 until 1903 or also for his successor A. W. Romanov, who was assayer until 1908.
According to Tammann (in TRP p. 36–37), Dmitri Ivanovich Osipov founded his firm before 1899. In 1910 he bought the majority of shares of his former competitor Eduard, who since 1905 was official supplier of orders' insignia to the Russian "Chapter of the Imperial and Royal Orders". According to Levin (Sergei S. Levin: Purveyors to the Chapter of the Russian Orders of Knighthood 1797–1917. In: PHS p. 177–199), in 1914 Osipov’s firm also became an official supplier of orders' insignia to that Chapter. The firm existed until 1917.
Согласно заметкам коллекционера приобретен весной 1965 или 1966 г у г-на Стрёма в Финляндии.
