Hi John, your mark:WAS
no entries. Difficult one. Could it read W.S
in an oval shield? Without town mark difficult to attribute.
For example W.S
for Willem Scholten, registered in Deventer 1776-1809
Your mark could it read SVM
conjoined. If so it could be for Pieter Staats van Mecklenburg, registered in Amsterdam 1779-1811
