Spoon - keep or bin?

Hi, i have a spoon with a marking on the back which says Burma Silver then Eye Witness. Does anyone know what that means? Should i just throw it away?

Eye Witness is the trade name of Needham, Veale & Tyzack of Sheffield. I suspect that “Burma Silver” is an alloy of base metals with no silver in it. It has no commercial value, but rather than throw it away, try to find a use for it.
