    Silver Ring

    I found this a couple of weeks ago at a beach I go to. I took it to a jeweler and they said it is silver but they couldn't identify the mark on the inside. They said it might be German but were not sure.
    What I would like to know is if anyone can tell me where it's from?

    It looks like it says J830S. The 830 is the silver content I think but what does the other marks mean?

    Britain always used the standard 925 and had another
    standard which is 950 silver which was called Britannia silver (this Britannia
    silver is seldom seen) and instead of the Lion rampant or lion Pageant you would
    see Britaina.Britain never used a standard less than 925.Hence why British
    silver is sought after pre-1900 hundreds. Britain would not accept any standard
    below 925 as silver. Most European countries up until 1920s used 830s.
    Scandinavian countries used 830s silver like Denmark moved to using 925 silver
    in 1927 however even though a higher grade of silver was used by most jewellers
    in Scandinavia, they stuck to stamping there jewellery 830s as they did not have
    to pay a tariff to the assaying office for the change over to 925. So most
    Jewellery made by fine houses in Scandinavia will in fact be marked 830s but
    will have a standard silver of 925. Places like Egypt still today only use 830
    silver.

    So, your saying that it could be 925 silver instead of 830. If it's from the countries you mentioned.

    Update:Thanks for your help. With what people on many forums gave me, I found it. See link below.
