Help identifying letter hallmarks

Postby pinkandgreen254 » Thu May 09, 2019 7:30 pm

Hello, I’m hoping someone might be able to assist me in identifying old set of fish knives and forks. Only stamped letters and an ampersand appears on the flatware. I’ve literally spent hours searching and to no avail. I think these might be Old Sheffield Plate, but not sure. The stamp marks are “D” “H” each inside a circle, “&” inside a shield shape, “S” inside a circle, followed by an “A” in another circle. The letters “D” “H” and “S” are in Old English type script, and the “A” in a newer type font. Any direction or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! PS- I’m not sure how to attach the photos.
