The hallmarks are for Sheffield 1904, which makes me wonder which war it relates to, especially as the first inscribed winner was Percy Ashley in 1961. The silversmith was Henry Atkin of Truro Works in Matilda Street, Sheffield. It is undecorated apart from some beading on the stem and base, and is awarded for Best Opposite Age at the Bradford Championship Show.
