Re: Unknown markings on knifes, help wanted

Looking at the marks my thoughts are: 927 (With top like ER, mark shown is perhaps for smaller items?), 931, and family of ER. The keyhole is round not oval and the ER have minor differences, especially the left side of the E but clearly in same style which would suggest a later family member indeed...

Re: Unknown markings on knifes, help wanted

Yes the blades have been replaced all, I have read: Friodur J.A.

Re: Unknown markings on knifes, help wanted

Because the end of the key that is to hold has square, I looked at Bremen. In Scheffler's "Goldschmiede Niedersachsens" I could not find a plausible (19e/20e century) "ER". Maybe it's not an "E"? Regards, Zilverik Thanks for checking, the mystery continues I guess :)

Re: Unknown markings on knifes, help wanted

Perhaps first you could show a little gratitude, and 2nd if you have seen different styles of the Leuven’s key mark without Leuven’s city mark and date code please show. Put your money were your mouth is and show us some images. If not like we say in Dutch; kun je wachten tot je een ons weegt. Kind...

Re: Unknown markings on knifes, help wanted

Re: Strange set, only double maker, help wanted

Like always your right. I just read that this mark must be by Hendrik NijMan, 1797-1815 accoarding to my source. It also explains the missing assay/year/silver level as silver/goldsmiths from Kampen only had to go to the assay office in Zwolle from 1812. Thanks again :)

Strange set, only double maker, help wanted Somehow this spoon and fork only have a double strike of the maker mark: HNM or WNH?
