    www . 925-1000 . com   ••    www . 925-1000 . com   ••    www . 925-1000 . com  




In 1884 a law was enacted making .800 the minimum national standard for silver in Germany. In 1886 the use of individual city marks was abolished and replaced by the national mark (reichsmark) of a crescent moon & crown mark (Halbmond und Krone) representing the entire German state. These marks became compulsory by 1888.
The crown & crescent moon are used in conjunction with a maker's mark and a decimal silver standard mark.

Common silver standards are .800 & .835 __ .830, .900, .925 and .935 purities are also used.
