Welcome back to the forum, Michael. The mark is an electroplate mark and has been identified on another site as (probably) the Continental Sheffield Silverplate Co of Brooklyn, NY.

I hope you will not mind me pointing out your previous post about your inheritance. It may be a lesson to other posters that a picture really is better than hundreds of words!

Thank you for the quick response. I really appreciate it. I do not mind being pointed out as a good example of a bad example. lol. I can understand how hard it would be to identify something from just a description. The platter is priceless to me due to its sentimental value. I am surprised it is a US hallmark but that makes it more interesting to me. Where can I find out more about this?
