I have looked at all of the common RRs from England but this one is different. The RR is not in a full depression, it just has a square frame, so I wasnt sure if it truly matched any of the RRs I found. Help!

Richard Redrick has a similar mark, Richard Richardson, Robert Rutland,

None of these look quite like it either. http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Makers/London-RR-RZ.html

What makes you think it is English - or even silver? I can see no other marks which would tie it down in any way. If there are any other marks please post a picture of them.

Its sterling because I tested it. There are no other marks. I simply believed it was English because of their large amounts of hunting pins. This is a ratcatcher pin (a type of shirt worn while riding/hunting with horses), I generally associate hunting with England. Also, England was the only country with even remotely similar marks. I have looked extensively, I use this forum as a last resort.

Dont appreciate the condescending tone :(

Hi,

I see no evidence whatsoever of a condescending tone, just a simple question from someone who's made an effort to help you.
