Old silver markings question


Recommended Posts

There will be more marks - will you put up a photo of all the hallmarks.

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.

COVID-19 is a cover story for the collapsing economy. Green Energy isn't Green and it isn't Renewable.

Hi, @Cscratchy.

Without all the marks put together, we can not find out what assay office, what year, what maker, etc.

The lion passant is the mark for sterling silver 925/1000 purity. Inside that type of shield was used for London (1300-present), Chester (1701-1962) and Sheffield (1773-present). Birmingham, Exeter, Glasgow, York, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Dublin used for sterling another symbols or lion in different shield.

For sure it is another mark to show the City Mark (London - leopard, Birmingham - anchor, Sheffield - crown, etc.).

The letter "m" should be analysed in accordance with all those marks to be find the exactly year. 

So, tell your friend, please, to make a picture of entire piece, having all together all the hallmarks and I am sure we can help.
