Mark, most cameras have a flower icon which puts you into macro setting.  Most suggest using macro for 28" (70 cm) or less. I usually take 3 or 4 shots and then save the best one and delete the others.  I use "SanDisk" software and save in MS Documents.

Hi Tom,


I have now moved the post to the 'whad ja find" group.


I hear what you say about 935 silver being Argentium however that was not invented till 1991, and I believe the butterfly to be somewhat older than that.


Also, countries such as Germany, Austria and Switzerland have in the past produced jewellery with a silver content of 935.


Indy.

Hi Tom,

My apologies for the photo being so rubbish (had tried out a new app off PlayStore for macro photographing, but with little success.

There are no other inscriptions of any kind of any of the four wings, however I have just noticed scratched into the abdomin the letters 'S/O' or 'SIO'.

The tips of both front wings show the silver under the gold plating and looks to be crudely cut or filed, as if the butterly was part/off something larger, and added to the pin to make the brooch.

Mark, fyi, 935 silver is known as Argentium. The standard for Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper.  By taking out some of the copper and adding germanium it changes to 93.5% Sterling Silver.  Germanium prevents tarnish.  Your butterfly was made by Orkin of London. (not confirmed, but I think I can see Orkin on the reverse picture.)

Using the Comment Wall allows others to walk over your post and doesn't keep replies or your comments together.  Using the Discussion does.

Hi Vicki,

My mistake, just realized I commented on the 'Comment Wall, and should have instead created a new post in the 'Add a Discussion' link seen just above.

I think the problem is that so many people are writing in the wrong location because the 'Common Wall' space is so large, and the 'Add a Discussion' link is so small and can be easily missed.
