    This is another one of my finds from late last year for 1 Euro. I'm wondering if this is an import piece.
    There is a stamp for .835 inside the dutch sword mark.
    There is something I refer to as a "keyhole decoration stamp" which has a number 3 inside. I think that has something to do with taxation and how many piece there are to one unit of jewelry. Shaped like old fashioned brass trim around a keyhole.
    There are silversmith initials: DCW inside a circle. There is something stamped above those initials but I can't make out what it is. Googling has gotten me nowhere.

    Input greatly appreciated.

      You are the Google queen Bonnie! I am constantly admiring your search skills.
      I hope someone knows the initials for you.

      Thanks so much, racer4! The only thing I managed to scrape up was something called DCW Hawaii, and I know that's not right. This is a pretty bracelet with a rather interesting clasp.

      kyratango may know, she's good with marks. It's a pretty design, Bonnie! :)

      Mystery... I went to forums and nothing...
      Grrr those maker's marks really need to be grouped in a book!
      The link design is beautiful!

      kyra - that's so annoying when a maker's mark can't be found. I looked there, too, and on several other sites.
