My name is Kevin and I am a complete newbie at collecting silver. I have been fscinated by the history, the objects themselves are sometimes quite beautiful and it is affordable at any level.
Now I have the time to start my new hobby and I have bought a set of six teaspoons?
I have had much pleasure in identifying the hallmarks.
Would you help me out by answering a couple of questions please?
Looking at the V for 1938 how can I tell that it is not the V for 1841 which is very similar? Is it because, according to my handbook, there is an extra mark for the older version?
I am also trying to identify the maker.
It looks like EFB to me but I can find no maker of that name.
Is this common or have I read the initials incorrectly.
Thank you in advance.
