M. for Messers.? Other middle marks might be pseudos rather than letters? Anything relating to attempted business in England?

Re: Sheffield Sterling band on Knife J.A.S. maker

Re: Sheffield mark - Dragon in a romper?

To try to answer your question..In short, the possibilities do not carry as much weight as the probabilities. It is likely made for the American trade with a highly deceptive label and a mark pointing toward onshore domestic production. At this point the mark is unique until another surfaces.

Gothic/Olde English letters EPNS for Electro-Plate(d) silver (.999 fine) over Nickel Silver base (non-precious metal alloy). Any additional maker mark (?) might lead to name of pattern. Full photos help...post at 640..X....sizing if possible.

Re: Sheffield mark - Dragon in a romper?

Have not found any specific entry for a "Plated On Copper" mark, but you my find Cheryl's comments here interesting as it relates to International Silver and a component firm: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=36457&p=96627&hilit=plated+on+copper#p96627
