    Hello everyone. It has been a few months since my last posting....hope everyone is doing well. I found this one today. I saw it in the case and was sure it was sterling, turns out it may not be. After some close inspection looks like an piece of Dutch silver. I pictured three of the hallmarks, the remaining hallmark is the Minerva head, but the image wasn't so clear. The date letter looks like the capital D...could be 1888?? What do you all think?

    The weight is 57.3 grams. I am happy with it for $7.00 !

    Take care!

      vetraio thanks for the comment and the help! I knew you would have a source, although I couldn't find the exact maker. Looks like the piece is at least .833 silver. Hope all is well with you.
