Halmarks are NEVER written. Handwritten or whatever.
I am sure that this is not silver but some kind of white-metal.

IF YOU WOULD VIEW NEWLY FOUND MARKS PLZ

I have seen them and they (initials) are makers mark. But I am still sure that it is not silver.

ok thank you for your help … how can you be sure it is not silver as you haven’t given reason behind your assessment???

well that is because you show no hallmarks indicating silver.
Lion passent (UK), sterling(US), 3 towers(DK), catspaws(Sweden), star(Spain), half moon/crown(Germany) ets ets.

no guardein mark - nothing that indicates official control mark.

As long as it only has a makest mark the chance of silver is absolut minimal. There are some situations where we do not have official marks but nothing indiates that in this case.

ok thankyou for your advice
