Help with identification of mystery bowl

Hello, I have recently acquired this shallow bowl/dish. It is about 12" in diameter. I’ve never seen these hallmarks before and don’t even know which way is up. Can anyone help?

Any information would be appreciated! Steve

This is an Egyptian hallmark. The second of your 3 pictures shows it the right way up. The first mark is a combined silver fineness and assay town mark. The second is the lotus flower mark for silver used from 1946 to 1967 and the third is a date indicator (more than one year per “letter”). I suggest that you check your marks against those shown here to work out the finer details.
