    Silver?

    Can I tell if this is solid silver or plate by these marks?
    Thanks!

    Drew, if that is the only markings then I would say silver plate. The fineness should be stamped somewhere on the object if it is solid. It could be hidden under tarnish. Sometimes a good shining up will reveal weak marks.

    Thank, Dave! There aren't any other marks. I suspected it was plate.
