But do you have any idea why my spoons are marked 925 S instead 830 S ?

because the silver is made of 925. could be for export to a "sterling" contry.

The reason is that it is difficult to burn enamel on 830/1000 silver. 925/1000 has a higher meltpoint. We have allways used 925 with enamel.
Marius Hammer, Bergen is the onlyone I knew that used 830 sometimes.
