Help with Chinese hallmarks on a Silver Belt

Postby mygoldrocks » Fri Feb 01, 2019 7:47 am

Hi,
Can anyone help with these hallmarks on this Chinese silver belt, does it give a clue to the silver purity, age and maker?
Thanks
Richard

Hi,

The first mark top left Chinese characters reads; pure silver or minimum 995 or higher up until 2015 and since legally reduced to 990.

Makers marks look like 呂廣興 but i don't sure about this.
Left mark of course "pure silver", but at the time when this belt was made, this mark did not guarantee any minimum purity.
