Hi ~ welcome to the forums.

It's usually helpful to show a picture of the item in question, but since you say it's an evil eye piece, it's probably Cypriot rather than Scandinavian - Cyprus also uses .830 fineness silver, and would be a much more likely place of origin...

Hello sorry i just recently entered the silver world, it dragged me in by my curiosity. Indeed the item was purchased from Cyprus, my assumption was from a quick googleling of the 830 marking but what about the other marking next to it?

Would guess a maker's mark - sorry, can't help there...
