Re: Persian silver?

I am a newbie and know little about Persian silver hallmarks but like you I put a post up on this site because I acquired a silver platter that I was curious abut (WoolyBugger March 22 ).

Need help on Iranian Hallmark

This is a hallmark on a silver platter I have. If anyone can on this site can identify it I would appreciate it.
