in the bowl MIDDX is for Middlesex county England. The numbers is the years. The crest on the end of handle is the three swords associated with Middlesex County Cricket Club.
The hallmarks indicate the spoon was made / hallmarked in 1924 in Birmingham England.

I assume you mean epns? which stands for electro plated nickel silver i.e. silver plated nickel rather than solid silver.

you're welcome, unfortunately these spoons won't pay for your retirement Smile
I guess they're worth about 10-15 GBP. Look for sterling standard and avoid epns if you possible. Sterling is signified by a lion stamp. try collecting rarer pieces by maker,town or very old 18th century or earlier and you might hit the jackpot. Good luck
