The fineness is .900.
Egyptian year letters are not easy to decipher.Could be 1960 to 1975.
Dots and curves are not consistently used.

I have been studying these symbols for weeks and trying to determine them as well. I recently acquired two pieces with what I know know as Arabic or Egyptian symbols of which I'm trying to determine the date of manufacturing I would be so grateful if anyone could assist. I know the first marking indicates the carot pr type on mine its 12 carot. The second symbol is a bird which I believe to represent Cairo the third is the date but I'm lost.
