First Hallmark on the item

Postby Gibby1 » Wed Apr 18, 2018 7:30 am

I have been trying to find out what this hallmark is as I know the anchor is for birmingham made and I know the lion is for .925 sterling. I have been unable to identify the first mark however. I believe the x is for the date of 1897-1898 would i be correct in saying this?

Can anybody help!

Btw. 1897 is correct (date letter x).
The business was closed in 1929.
