Could Anyone give me some help on these hallmarks plz and thanks
Got a clearer pic? Looks like SN (or NS?) and RD
More info always helps, like what the hallmark is on and where you got it
Had a quick look, but could make heads or tails of it. Definitely need clearer pix and what it is, as hallmarks are differnt for silverware to jewellery.
Not really only these, i was out with a friend metal detecting today an they found it, its on a spoon
Couldn't get a good pic of it with the sun and my phone
Maybe this can help
First thoughts are that it's plated - there's no lion passant to indicate that it's English sterling, but my knowledge of Continental silverware is pretty thin.
Mock hallmarks on items to make them "look" like sterling while not being fraudulent aren't uncommon - heck, most stainless steel ktichen flatware still has markings on it where hallmarks go.
Separate names with a comma.
