Here are four pieces that looked like silver from the get go. I did clean a few of the off, but they were very old and dirty. I believe them to be sterling silver or higher purity. They are all very very tiny, maybe half an inch max. I know one is a clip on earring, one is a cuff link and the others I don't know. THanks!

    hmmm...tanks AR8Jason for the info....always nice to talk and learn from you. The swivel piece pictured last tested to be silver. But I am still learning how to test silver and gold properly and could have made an rookie mistake. OK thanks have a great day!

    Do not throw away!! Silver Mexico is 950+ see my Mexico belt buckle! I tested it 3 times! Mexican silver purity marks ranging from the 1900’s to the early 1970’s were marked “MEXICO SILVER”, “900”, “925”, “970”, “980” and “Eagle numbered”. “Mexico Silver” or “Silver Made in Mexico” are seen on jewelry pieces from the 1920’s through mid-1940’s with varies of silver standard above .925 purity. The intaglio “900” mark is found on work dating from 1900 until the 1920’s. Intaglio marks “980”, “960”, “940”, and “925” are from the mid 1930’s to the mid 1940’s. The “970” was the favorite stand

    Very very interesting! I don't have too much knowledge about Mexican silver and always found it to be a bit confusing. Now I can refer back to this! Thank u sir!
