Hello, I guess I could use some help with this one. I thought it would be easy to ID, but not the case. The seller claimed that it was from Norway, which could be the case. I am unable to find these markings anywhere. I do not think they are 100 percent consistent with Norweigen marks. Except I did see the crooked A while browsing. Anyone know where to start.

I like to include some "coin silver" spoon from outside the U.S., but I am not entirely sure this is coin silver or 900 purity or less. Later!

    Thanks vetraio50. I didn't think Norway, Finland makes sense and looks correct. I will have to learn the rules for hallmarking in Finland. Interesting. Thanks mikkochristmas11, mustangtony and bratjdd!!! Take care!

    Looks like the first maker's mark and town of Turku in vetraio50's second link, just a lower purity.
