I have to suggest that this is not silver as the marks are not silver hallmarks. I am not even certain that it's an electroplate mark. Could it be pewter?

It probably is pewter. Is there a date system for pewter like there is for silver? Or a site like this?

No, there is no dating system for pewter - it is entirely unregulated. The Pewterbank web site might be of interest.
