Thank you for the update! You have a genuine WWII era German hip flask for an aviator (Luftwaffe) manufactured in .900 fine silver, which is a grade of sterling from the era (sterling is now standardized at .925 fine, or 92.5% pure silver.
At present, to a WWII ephemera collector, the market retail would be from $150 to $225 pending actual condition and demand at any given time.
