Real WM A Rogers or faked?

One of the lots I recently purchased from an estate sale had 4 6" silver plates with a very simple WM A ROGERS stamp on the back of each. Is this a real rogers mark or could it be faked? I’m sure the older woman who owned the plates thought it was real but I just need to make sure. It just seems a bit “plain”.

thanks for any insight you can give me - Stephanie

Hi there Stephanie and thanks for joining us. The mark appears to be one of the many “Wm A Rogers” silverplate marks used by the Onieda Silver Co. after it acquired the original Wm. A. Rogers Co. in 1929.
