Good morning all,

I would appreciate some assistance with the Egyptian hallmark (Photo attached)

I understand that .900 is the silver parts per 1000. I also think that the middle hallmark is the lotus flower but I cannot identify the third part of the hallmark

Thanks for your assistance

Regards

Derek

The 3rd symbol is the date letter. There is a chart of letters for 1916 to 1982 here but there doesn't seem to be an exact match, so it may date from post-1982.
