Birmingham Date Mark, Confused!

Postby SYYS3010 » Wed Aug 16, 2017 9:36 am

I'm new at learning how to read Makers marks and so far I've been doing pretty well. I have however run across a mark that is confusing me.
I'm not sure if I am reading the letter date correctly can someone help me? I was able to identify the Makers mark but that was all.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

There is no obvious Birmingham hallmark in your pictures. For those who are reluctant to click on picture links I have included the marks from your second picture below:

This is typical of a Hanau pseudo-mark (see the Hanau marks page at http://www.925-1000.com/Fgerman_hanau_marks_01.html). Although the exact combination of marks from your spoon is not illustrated, the crowned P looks very similar to the crowned Ps on marks attributed to Georg Roth & Co.
