Hello, if this is a '12', it means 12 Lot, standing for 750 / 1000 parts silver. Íf this is a letter, it might be the town mark. This would also point at silver from Germany, probably of a low quality. I checked for the Name Aschhoff but found no mention of it. Best wishes, Bahner

Hello, this seems to be the mark of Berlin, Germany: a bear and the letter K (mark is upside down), used between 1819 and 1854. The letter B is that of the second warden, used only between 1842 and 1847. R would be the mark of the maker or retailer - whoever he was. Best wishes, Bahner.

Hello, this is Kurt Poetzsch from Weissenfels, Sachsen (Saxony), Germany. He started using this mark about 1932 or 1933 and continued using it until the 1960ies. Just a gut feeling - but this is rather 1930ish than postwar. Best wishes, Bahner
