    Trade Silver Makers Mark Help

    I found a few pieces of trade silver in my hunting area. This one has some makers marks/hallmarks on the back. I can't figure them out...any ideas?

    Could the first letter possibly be a T? I haven't found an ID yet but still looking.

    Hi,

    with some phantasy I see in the lower part an upside down "Lion passant" a walking lion, meaning it is English sterling silver (I dont know if that is any help or if all trade silver was english).

    The upper, cut of mark should be the year letter. I cannot fully identfy it,form of the shiled looks second half of the 18th century to me. No city mark afics

    With the piece in hand, perhaps this link may be helpful:

    I couldn't find a positive ID on the makers mark but the design leads me to believe it may have been from a pocket watch case or cover.
