Hi,
National ``lotus`` mark since 1946.
Fineness .900 and Cairo.
Date letter is for 1953 - 1956, bu the same letter was repeated in 2002.
Arabic date letters are difficult to read due to variations in curves and position of dots.
Regards

Hi AG2012,
thank you for your quick reply.
It is very interesting and appreciated.
I just have one more question…
The``lotus`` mark is in the center with a point left below.
Which mark is the fineness and assay office Cairo, the left or right?
Thanks again
Best regards

Hello again,
Fineness is on the left. Arabic numerals for ‚‚900‚‚ are easy to decipher; 9 is practically the same, then two dots (zero, zero)..
Cairo is above numerals.Date letter far right.
