    Awesome find!!! Captain bars sterling! And Cool pin!

    Hey friends.

    Went to my brother-in-laws house today. Didn't have much luck during the beginning but paid off during the end when I got a hit +80 +81. I pulled it out and found a sterling silver piece. it has 3 stamps on the back with the brand and sterling. I asked a friend who knows a lot about military stuff and they said it was definitely military and it was a captain pin that went on a collar. the two bars mean captain rank. Also found this cool US stove pin as well. thanks for looking all! ALL COMMENTS ARE APPRECIATED

    Awesome find is right!

    though it says London, the markings are Birmingham.

    J R G & S into five squares
    J R Gaunt & Son,
    Birmingham
    I can't find a capital I date letter that corresponds to the assay office marks.
    they were using Capital block letters but skipped the I in 1933, see here:

    anyway, Birmingham, post 1900.

    Those bars are awesome! You should try to trace the lineage...the owner may still be alive and wouldn't it be great to return these!
