      Hi, Arjosolofind. :-)

      I don't know about that bird (eagle?) on the left, and the lion rampant on the right, but those marks in the center look like they could be the Continental Silver Company:

      FYI, the general rule of thumb on silver is that if it's sterling, it's marked with the word "Sterling," ".925," or some other sterling standard (the amount of silver content to be considered sterling varied between countries and eras).

      Yes he is correct, if it's not stamped Sterling It's not sterling.
