Hi RedMask,

It looks like a British Registry Design mark.

See: http://www.925-1000.com/registry.html

Hi,
Looks like 1905. ``Diamond`` code that late ?

Hi AG2012,

The design mark could well have been part of the original die and would appear on all pieces regardless of the year that they were struck.
