Hi,
It definitively looks like Egyptian mark for fineness .900 and Cairo (compare with the mark on the right).
Additional 925 is not relevant.Not much difference.It could be sterling and marked .900 according to the official standard. Or 925 added to conform to tourists.
There is no date letter.
Cheers

Thanks AG2012,
I thought it was Egyptian, it is now confirmed.

The important thing to remember is such hallmarks guarantee a minimum standard, thus if the piece were made of, say, 950/1000 standard silver, in this case, it would still be struck with the 900 hallmark.
