My guess is .800 

Reason being...its neither .999 .925 .958 and .900 is usually a gold percentage ( or American silver ) that's as far as I got really 😅

Shirley it has to be .925 or better  🤷‍♂️

we need a clue

Having had the chance to look at the photo with a magnifying glass I’m going to stick my neck out and confirm this is in fact  93.2% Silver.

Or could be 0%

.500 silver

 

Or 100%

Or maybe it was made in Switzerland and balances out at .935

This is getting to be fun! 

Not 935!

I just want you to know, we're all counting on you.

Like my old mate Abe Acus?

If it's not Sterling silver which I thought these were... I'll try this as a guess then; it was issued as Sterling but the mint had a bad day, so it's only just off the defined amount of 92.5%...94%? 🤣 I don't blinking know. I wrote my answer out on a £50 note as requested but the ballpoint went straight through so I had to throw it out, sorry!

How about retrieving the note from the bin, photographing it, and posting (the photo) it here?
