Re: Identify makers marks on stag carving set. Sheffield?

These are manufacturer's marks, not hallmarks. MB is Maurice Baum. See here for more information.

Re: Tiffany? teaspoons unknow pattern.

Not Tiffany. T&Co is Toyé & Co. They were registered as "Masonic Outfitters & Jewellers" but also made souvenir spoons. The spherical bits on the handle look as if they may be meant to represent lawn bowls so the spoons may have been made for a bowls club or as a general bowls ...

Re: WW1 trench watch maybe

I prefer I for 1905 as the date letter. OP suggests that the letters of the sponsor's mark are FD, but it does not seem to have made it into any of the published references.

Re: Smoking pipe makers mark identification and orgin

Hi and welcome to the forum. This is actually a Birmingham hallmark, not London. We can tell from the shape of the punch. So the date is actually 1907. Unfortunately Birmingham marks are not as well documented as London marks so I am unable to tell you who J&HA might be. We have a "Contribu...

Re: Are these two small ladles from Estonia?

Just beaten to it! Yes, it's TT for Thomas Tookey. This mark was registered in 1779 and, as there is no duty mark, it must date from 1779 to 1784; I suspect it's "f" for 1779.

Re: London Makers Mark

I hope I don't sound too patronising when I say "well done with the pictures"! Nice and clear and easily identifiable - when you know what you're looking for. You are right with London, but this "n" is the date letter for the assay year 1908/09. The maker's mark is JW over FCW, t...

Re: ID Hallmark & Origin? of Brooch/Pendant

This is an Egyptian hallmark for 800 standard silver. The first mark shows the assay office symbol above the Arabic numerals for 800 (٨٠٠). The second mark, the lotus palm for silver, has been in use since 1946 and the third mark is the date code.

Re: Help in identifying this badge

Silver has to be hallmarked if it weighs more than 7.78 grammes. This strange quantity derives from the old gold and silver measurement system and corresponds to 5 pennyweights where 1 pennyweight is 1/240 of a troy pound.

Re: Which countries use three-part hallmark

Check out the Watson Company at https://www.925-1000.com/americansilver_W2.html. As there is no apparent indication of it being sterling silver it is much more likely that it is electroplate.

Re: English Silver Hallmarking

Sheffield date letters changed on the first Monday in July when the Wardens for the following year were elected. We can therefore say that your cup was assayed in Sheffield between Monday 4th July 1881 and Saturday 1st Jul 1882. It can not possibly have been in Melbourne during the exhibition period...
