This silver button hook was a Christmas present from my husband three years ago. The hook part is from steel, only the handle is silver. It is hallmarked from both sides, I included close ups about the hallmarks. According to marks it was made in Birmingham in 1800s. I'm not sure about the date letter.
I don't know much about silver marks, but I have an inkling it's a counterfeit. It might be only my imagination. My hubby admitted he paid little for it when he won the hook by bidding on ebay.
I appreciate any thought about it, thank you in advance!!!
