I have a spoon crown, lion, K, and then HA. Is this spoon solid silver?


Yes, that is sterling silver. Don't call it solid, because that means something else. The crown stands for Sheffield, the Lion stands for sterling, and the HA is the initials of the silver maker Atkin Brothers. The K is the date, but you will have to look on the Encyclopedia of Silver Marks website to match it with the correct date. They will have a list there under British, Sheffield silver that you can find it on.
