Hi I am a noob looking for hallmark help...

-Is the crown an ″1807-1810 Netherlands, Silver fineness .934 ″mark?

-Is the oval with stripe a ″Utrecht 1810-1814 Guaranty″ mark?

-Is the date letter 1809 or 1960?

-And how does this fit with the axe, which I assume is the ″1853-1927 old silver articles, that had come back into circulation of silver fineness .833″ mark?

-I cant find any information on the mark V:V with star. Ideas?

Hi tygyrius,

here are some additional informations.

You are right!

The Crown was used to 934 silver (Link 1) (Link 2)

The Guaranty mark/Office mark looks like Utrecht with the diagonal Stripe from left to right. More often Stripe left down to right up. (Link 1) (Link 2)

The Dateletter ″a″ was used October 1807 till March 1809 (Link)

The hatchet (axe) was a duty mark for old silver objects of national origin returned to the trade. The use of this mark was abolished in 1927 for two reasons: 1st . The lack of knowledge of the old marks has caused this mark to be sometimes struck on old foreign objects. 2nd. this mark had often been counterfeited and used to give objects an antique aura. (Link)

(V:V Star) is Netherland, Utrecht ca. 1806+ Nicolaas van Voorst) (Link)




Cya,
