Does 925A mean high-end British silver?

Postby AllSeasons » Tue Jul 27, 2021 3:51 pm

I recently purchased a small item (pin/pendant) with a "925A" mark, but no hallmark. I looked online, and it seems that 925A denotes higher-end British silver? Is that still true now, especially in America? I assume this is an American piece, though. An image of the item is below. Thanks.

Always post an image of the marks.

925A has never been a British silver designation. You may have been thinking of the use of A (and A1) on electroplate to denote a manufacturer's best quality.

Thank you. Here's an image of the mark. Or is the "A" the hallmark?

Possibly the A is being used to represent the word argent, which is a term used to denote silver.
