It's gotta be silver, as it's marked sterling, so, SUPER find, PA!!! What exactly is it, a hair beret or something? It looks like it was originally folded over. Or is it a bar? That right there is a HUNK of silver love Yes Beer

I wish I knew what it was from. It was folded over but not in an organized kind of folded. It's about as thick as a piece of paper, no other marks except the sterling and what look like makers marks. I will try to get a good pic of the smaller marks. Don't know what they are but hopefully the pic is clear enough that someone will know.

Hallmarks are a real bear PA! Congrats on the find! Yes it's silver! Anything marked Sterling is .925 silver by weight. Most all pre 64 US coins are 90%, or .900 silver.
The three hallmarks usually contain a city, date, and country code. Not necessarily in that order. They did that on purpose to prevent forgery and keep track of their line of silver. Then there is a manufacturer's mark. I think the Delta shaped thing is the mfg. mark on your's. Great find. Could be an executive or letter paper clip. May have faint initial engraving on it.
