    Posted on the Finds thread, now hallmark images as well. There's three wee cartouches, the middle reads 925. Another odd shaped one to the left of the three. Anyone recognise or guess at what they are please?

    Most of the cartouches are the wrong shape.

    Yeah, I was hoping the bigger one might look vaguely familiar!

    In the one photo my eye/brain want to make something recognizable, but if a silver mark of some type, not one I know.

    Hmmm, pretty poorly struck or rubbed, but looks like 1904 or later British import marks to me - town mark/925/date letter, the larger mark perhaps the sponsor...

    So very pretty. Reminds me of the silverware jewelry. Every photo seemed a little different. The last one looked like Y8 instead of 925. It's really lovely.

    Import marks hadn't occurred to me, I'll squint at it again with that in mind. The middle one is definitely 925, but it's the only legible mark!

    It is a beauty obb. One for the hoard?

    Spurious marks that insinuate greater age can definitely be found on silver - but not seeing where an age for this bracelet or the other unmarked piece was suggested, if those are British import marks, that form was in use from 1904-98...

    Oh, it's in the Hoard. I cannot resist silver bangles.

    I don't think this is of enough potential value to have pseudo marks, so I'm with Cheryl.

    The marks are set too deep for any wear unless it was it was done on purpose. Perhaps a copy made from an original casting,no marks on the ebay link so no one knows where and when it was made.
