My Maternal Grandfather a tailor in Mpls Mn received a stein

Customer Question

My Maternal Grandfather a tailor in Mpls Mn received a stein as a holiday gift from the tavern he frequented, on the front it is engraved "MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR BILLY F.O'HERN, 1910 MINNEAPOLIS, MINN" on the rim of the stein it shows the marking 0,4L followed by three dots one above the other I see no other markings of any kind.The stein is in extremely fine condition and has no damage of any kind to either the stein or the pewter top, as I approach my eightieth birthday and am deciding who should have it next I am curious as to it's value if any and would be grateful for anything you might tell me about it. Thank you= Bill Nichols
