Welcome to the forum.

Not sure, but your mark looks similar to one used by C. Rietveld, Schoonhoven, The Netherlands.
Wait for other opinions.

Hi Chris,

Yes, I agree with Patrick, R 133 for Cornelis Rietveld. You could check for the date letter and assay office mark; the Minerva head should carry the letter M in its helmet, for Schoonhoven. The hallmarks are spread over the object and sometimes could be a little hidden.

Regards,

Hi Oel and Patrick,

Thank you so much for your input and it looks like you are both correct.

I found a silver piece on eBay with the same mark:

Again I appreciate your help.
