Nice addition. There are some circular depressions at the bottom, are these schroff marks ?

Thank you Anthony.

the circular depression is not looking like shroff mark. A shroff mark has a distinctive shape. But here it's not like that. It has a little blob in the center. Also the mark is in both side in the same place.
Can it be a some kind of clip mark while the metal is hot? or any kind of counter mark?

I don't really know. That's why i asked. Perhaps one of our other members can provide a possible explanation ?

Since both marks are in the same place, they may mark where a clamp once was, that converted this beauty into clothing decoration. If it would have been used as jewellery, the clamp would have been at 12 o'clock, so clothing decoration is more likely. The small lump in the middle may be where whatever was used to "glue" the clamp reacted with the silver.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
