Silver and Flatware/silver pocket watch



Can you please help me with these hallmarks?
I have no idea what they mean.
They're on a silver pocket watch.

Thank you!!


Hi, Folkert.

They resemble British sterling marks. I can't quite make out all the details but the lion could be the British sterling mark. If one of these is an anchor, it could represent the city of Birmingham. The "m" looks like a date mark.

Look at the British hallmarks found on this site and see what you thing:

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
