    Not sure where to put this because it's probably not silver, went to my local bar and noticed the bartender was using this (object) as a bottle opener. Noticed some hallmarks so I thought I better investigate!

    I find these hallmarks interesting none-the-less. I have done some research, still researching... anyone know what these hallmarks represent? The first hallmark are the initials "JL" with a crown on top, the second; two keys crossing in front of a papal umbrella pointing north (sede vacante).

    Ha, I came across that too. If there's not much info on it I'm inclined to think it's not silver but I've also learned not to assume anything.
