This is a Dublin hallmark for 1867. JB (or JE?) is the watch case maker, but I have no idea who it could be.

Thanks for the indentification! Much appreciated.
What's the "B" over the JD or JE. I included an extra pic to help.

In the original pic there is also what appears to be a 4 and 9 at the bottom. Does this have any important meaning?

The B could be part of the maker's mark or it could be a journeyman's mark. Numbers on watch cases are often serial numbers - of the case itself rather than the watch.

Did some quick google searches and found that the JD is for John Donegan.

The link to the silvermark can be found at http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Makers/Dublin-JL.html

Now to identify the B.
