Hallmarks on flatware


I have 7 small pieces of flatware that appear to be silver with an unknown handle material. Possibly ivory or celluloid but I’m not sure. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.



It looks like a Sheffield sterling silver hallmark, possibly with the maker’s mark (AH ?) for Aaron Hadfield but, to confirm that and to give you a date, your pictures must be in-focus. Have another go at the hallmark and don’t try to get too close. Taking your picture through a magnifying lens may help to give a better result.
