Need help determining marking on obverse side


Recommended Posts

I inherited a large, heavy hammered silver pitcher, 6 short cups and 6 tall goblets, all with the same mark on the obverse side, which is shown below. The individual who originally purchased these items lived in OK, ARK, NY., Caracus, Venezuela and the Azores, if that is of any help. They were most likely purchased between 1925-1945, but do not know from where they were purchased.

Any guidance or information concerning the mark on these items and values of items will be much appreciated.

My hunch is these are pewter. That the 0,900 is 90% tin.
You could try these people.


Always cast your vote - Spoil your ballot slip. Put 'Spoilt Ballot - I do not consent.' These votes are counted. If you do not do this you are consenting to the tyranny. None of them are fit for purpose. 
A tyranny relies on propaganda and force. Once the propaganda fails all that's left is force.

Hi @croftca
It's Columbian .900 Silver. I can't find anything on the maker but this mark and the dates you mentioned match.
As to price, that will probably go off weight. If you can weigh it and establish the exact silver content (90% of it's weight) and the current silver price, that will give you it's minimum value.

Having said that, I would think the set of six goblets would sell for much more than scrap value.
