Question
Hello'
I recently purchased a golf trophy that is stamped Wilcox & Co. Other stampings include, Paisley, 64 oz, 69, pantented Jan 11,1927. The trophy is stamped, City Golf Championship
Butte, 1928 Won by Dr. J J Kirby. The trophy is appx. 13 " in height. It is in excellent condition. I am wondering if you would be so kind as to provide some additional information about this piece? If you need pictures, I can send them. Thankn you very much for your time.
Mike

Answer
Hi, Mike.

There were several silver companies with "Wilcox" as part of the name. I don't know which manufactured your piece. Since the word, "Sterling", is not present, one can assume it is made of silver plate. If I am correct about the silver plate construction, the piece has little value based solely on silver content. Any value it has would be related to its purpose as a trophy. People associated with the specific golf championship would probably be most interested in this piece. Or, perhaps someone related to the winner. You might contact golf courses in Butte to see if they know anything about this.

Sorry I could not help any more.

Best wishes,

Jim
