    Capital Q in a shield with a pointy bit in the middle looks like 1891.

    Capital F in a circle?

    I have forwarded on the image to a friend who gave me the book!

    Thank you.
    Any idea what is
    ETR
    Q
    F

    Q and F seems to be a year, but together?
    As of ETR - it seems to be manufacture. Which one?

    I think ETR must be the maker but a quick Google wasn't much help.

    Hopefully my friend will be able to help as he collects a lot of silverware

    It could be ETB not ETR :)

    Thank you.
    So, Q (1891) makes sense with ETB

    F in circle left.

    My contact confirms the above 1891 and the Edwin Thomas Bryant info and adds; The F in the circle cartouche indicates that it's foreign silver imported into the UK. The office of assay is London.
