Hello,My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. There were no photos of the piece that came with your original inquiry.Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the item and any marks, labels or writing.
Open the case and look for the maker's mark and the word STERLING. Describe the makers mark to me. It would be small and either on the edges of the inner case or on the back flap of the holder bar.
Without seeing the piece, I am unable to assess it.
I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer.They will see our conversation. I am not able to respond once I opt-out. Good luck!
As a non-sterling metal presentation cigarette case from World War II, this can sell for an average of $15 - $40. As a case that may have been presented to and owned by the father of Senator John McCain, Commander McCain, this could sell for up to $200 or more in the right market. It would be necessary for you to somehow prove a direct link to such ownership. Doing so would entail a fair amount of research in tracing ownership to your possession and still, ultimately, may not lead to a definitive answer on if Commander McCain indeed possessed the case.
