No thank you. I can't make out the letters either. I think it's either Russian or Islamic. I have a better photo.

Hello
The mark is 10 Miment 1c, the only thing I can find it Mimet France, there is a Hotel Called Mimet Hotel,I believe this was a piece from that hotel. Have you tested this to see if it is Sterling?

Great! How do you test the silver?
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 1 year ago.
There is a test kit you can get at the hardware store or you can run it by a jewelry store they can test it for you.

Thank you so much!

You are welcome, when you find out if they are silver come back and I can value them for you or I can value them now as if they are silver and then if they are silver plate and you will already know when you get them tested.

I'll get back to you after I get the kit. Thank you!
