Not sure if this vesta case is sterling silver. Need to know the date of this piece and if it is genuine. Are these hallmarks real or fake, and what do they say? I hope I've posted the images correctly below.
The date letter is almost certainly "y" for 1898. Note that the anchor is sideways so the last possible date (for this period) is 1899 as the anchor reverted to an upright attitude with the new date letter cycle starting in 1900.
