750 Silver

Postby cjnps56 » Wed Sep 22, 2021 3:51 pm

During what time period did countries use 750 silver? And what countries used it? I have a very nice fibula crossbow brooch that is simply marked 750. It is designed with a dragon head. I'm trying to date it.
Thank you,
Carol

Hi,
750 standard has been used for centuries (12Loth in German speaking countries),Prussia, Italy,Spain,Yugoslavia,Czechoslovakia,Romania,Hungary.
Millesimal fineness 750 parts of silver in 1000 indicates very late 19th century or later.
Show us the brooch; the clasp may help to date it. (C clasp or later variants).
Regards

Hello, a German origin is possible. The mark 750 would imply a production after the metric system was introduced in the German States at the end of th 1850ies. After 1888 a maker would have used 800/1000 silver fine (or higher) rathern than the old-fashioned 750. So this gives a very rough time frame. IF this is German. Regards, Bahner
