925 A1 silver?

Hi,
I am about to receive an item that is stamped 925 A1 silver. I have never heard of A1 unless combined with EPSN.

Has anyone heard of A1 925, minus the EPSN?

Thanks for any help.

Re: 925 A1 silver?

It indicates 92.5% silver, more commonly known as sterling silver.

[edit] Actually looks like the A1 may indicate sterling plated only? http://www.silvercollection.it/dictiona … mbols.html

EPNS = Electro-Plated Nickel Silver

I will be worried getting those item without a hallmark on them.
A1 doesn't mean anything, 925 stamp are readily available anywhere these days.
Can get from any jewellery supplies for about $20

thanks guy's, I thought that might be the case. I will know for certain when I get my hands on it.

I'm not too worried as I didn't pay much, I took a small risk, in the hopes it was sterling silver.

I have seen those stamps on ebay, I was thinking this piece may have originally just had the A1 silver stamp, and some sneaky bugger went and stamped the 925.
