I picked this Bracelet up in the water last Sunday, it weights 2.3 oz’s or 66 grams.
It looks like Silver, if it is, it is an alloy, it did not ring in as silver.
It rang in closer to gold then silver. I used my Explorer to check it also.

I can not find the Hallmarks that are on this Bracelet listed anywhere on line.
Any help would be appreciated.

This Bracelet looks like it is Hand Made and you can see some tool marks in it.
It looks like it was a flat bar stock that was twisted to make this Bracelet.
The Red that you see in the pictures is a reflection off of my T-shirt.
This Bracelet also shows some heavy wear in places so I do not think that it is Plated.
The swimming area that I picked this up in, I have pulled 7 rings, most of them are junk,
And a bunch and clad and 17 wheat pennies.
This swimming area was opened in the late 1800’s and closed in the 1970’s.
The people that used this beach made to much noise for the locals.
The City has now opened a new Swimming area about 100 feet to the west of this one.
They told the locals if they were not happy with the noise to Move Out! The Beach and the park were there way before they were.
Thank You for your Help.
Kevin

The triple crown mark reminds me of the Swedish Government mark since 1783. The triple crown was enclosed in an oval shape for an Import item. If the crowns are not enclosed the item was produced before 1912. Swedish silver is typically .830 pure, or a lower purity of silver than Sterling which is .925 pure. What is the purity of your spoon?

I have not tested the Bracelet for Sliver content.
Tell the truth, I did not think it was good Sliver.
You think this could have been made from a Spoon Handle? I did not think of that.
Here is a few more pictures
Thanks Don
Kevin

Granted, the Swedish crowns are normally shown two over one, not arched.
Don...

I think you are in the general ballpark. As they look like Nordic/Viking reenactors pieces made in scandinavia. ie. copies of circa 9th C bracelets.

I think it sounded more like gold because the bracelet isn't a complete circle (meaning entirely connected). It messes with the signal
