H is the first letter of the Finnish word for silver, Hopea, and '916H' is a Finnish designation for .935 silver, see Warman's Jewelry 2nd Edition, 'Marks on Metals' for a concise listing of many silver fineness marks.'Tardy's International Hallmarks on Silver' is a great resource, and also includes the above info, and much much more, including information about the hallmarks used in Malta from about 1530 onwards.Both of the above volumes can be found available for sale online or at quality booksellers. Hi Sande-- I'm a silversmith here in the US and often work in Ag .980 I know many people that do as well.I picked up a pair of contemporary silver earrings at an estate sale this weekend.They look like a Lisa Jenks design, but are signed with the copyright symbol and an outstretched hand. There are a series of hallmarks on top of the bail, the 1st one is a bird or animal with its mouth open, the 2nd one is 830H, the 3rd one is an A with a bar across the top, the 4th one is a crown, he 5th one is R7.I am also trying to find out more information about hallmarks used in Malta, not only this century but possibly also during the times of the Knights (circa 1550-1798).Thanks and regardssubmitted by Ray Zammit I've only run across the use of the number '916' in one instance, and that in conjunction with the letter H, ie '916H'.Since the times of the pharaohs, silver and gold have been used at the highest grades here in Egypt. I've recently come across a piece of silver hallmarked 916.Would anyone know anything about this hallmark and where it was used?
The left box of each row is for the mark, either a photograph or text indicating the name found on the piece.

Here in Egypt we have 900 silver and up (hallmarked) and thats the most common grade of silver we have here (this applies to gold too, we dont have 9 karat or 14 karat gold here. In silver jewelry you might find less grade depending on the design.
This is mostly because its elaborate and demands specific grades to be more managable and workable as most of them are hand made.
So most Jewellery made by fine houses in Scandinavia will in fact be marked 830s but will have a standard silver of 925.
