These all sound like silver assay, country and date marks but I will need to see them

in order to assess the piece. When doing the photography, do not use a flash (use daylight)

so that I can see more details. Thanks!

If that is too much bother, you can email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'forCustomerin antiques' in the subject line.
Use the same email that you used when creating your account so that they will recognize you.
These do not arrive instantly, so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way (might be overnight).

Once you do, give me some time to research.

No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I respond.

(NOTE: I do not participate in the phone service.)

I did send pictures, sorry you didn't get them I will try again

The photo of the marks was taken using a flash, so I am unable to see the marks.

Please do a photo in daylight with NO camera flash so that it is not overexposed. Stand by a window so that the marks are lit from

just one side, this allows the symbols to stand out more with light from just one side. Thanks!

This is a sterling silver bracelet made in 1808 or 1832 (hard to see the M date code).

The seated queen and harp are assay marks for Dublin, Ireland.

The very first two marks are the maker's marks (illegible).

This bracelet has a current value of $235 to $250.00 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top right of your screen and hit the green submit button, thanks!
