Are these silver hallmarks? (RB ship , 84)

Hi,

I got some forks and spoons with these hallmarks:

…I was hoping if someone can tell me what do they mean.

Also got these(but I am pretty sure its Electro Plated, but if someone know the meaning of all the marks I would be grateful:

This is the shipping company logo:

84 is a recognised silver standard, normally Russian, but your pictures are too small to make out the details of the marks.

Your [G] [LTD] [EP] spoon is definitely electroplate. GLtd may be Gladwin Ltd of Sheffield or Gieves Ltd of London.

I’ve just found that your pictures are clickable links to larger versions. Having looked at the mark more closely the RB is really very clear but it rules out Russia because “R” is not a Cyrillic character.
