Help. Is this silver or not?

Hi, I have a set of spoons with some marks on, could anyone translate them for me and let me know if they are silver or not. Thanks

The stamps may be upside down, not sure which way up they should be.

You are correct. They are upside down. When inverted they read EPNS - electroplated nickel silver, so not silver. This mark cannot be ascribed to any particular manufacturer or, hence, date.
