unknown sterling fork  
Hi Jim,

I have a pair of 7" sterling forks. I would like to learn the following:

1) Maker
2) Pattern
3) Date of pattern or manufacture
4) Value

The forks are marked with a hallmark I do not recognize.I am hoping that you will be able to ascertain the information I seek from the attached pictures. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Ed

Answer
Hi, Ed.

The mark is a little fuzzy but it might be a mark not often seen that was used by International Silver. I have not found this online but it is in a reference book I have. Check the International patterns here to see if any match: http://www.sterlingflatwarefashions.com/Patterns/1Pattern.html .

If this does not work, ask a follow up question and see if you can get a larger, clearer picture of the mark. The AllExperts site sometimes has reduced clarity.

Best wishes,

Jim
