Help ID this 922 silver wallet?

Postby Wolfrott » Mon Nov 16, 2015 12:15 am

I am at a loss with this supposedly German sterling silver & crocodile skin wallet.

It is missing the ordinary sickle, crown, and 800 hallmarks.

Any clue as to the maker and the age? Help would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, wow! Thank you so much!

I feel like an idiot; my eyesight isn't so good lately. How did you match up the maker's mark?

The mark was already known to me.

Please ensure that your images remain in position as this helps others searching for the same mark.

Thanks very much for your help, and I will certainly keep my image up so others can learn from it :)

An interesting and partly misleading mark "German Silver" ???? It's not plated even if the mark "indicates" it.

It would be interesting to know which parts are sterling and which parts are German Silver. I suspect the more exposed parts are Sterling and perhaps the more sturdier parts (hinge etc.?) may be German Silver?
