Trying to figure out if this is sterling or plate
Hrmmm it doesnt seem to have the official hallmarks of british sterling. This is supposedly a mug from the 1800s and probably from britain. likely plated?
This website is invaluable - www.925-1000.com for hallmarks.
It looks to me that the mark says "EP" which means electroplated.
Thanks mate, I found the hallmark and it is indeed plate. Still on the lookout for a sterling mug. Why drink any other way?
