Chinese? Japanese Hallmark on silver bracelets

Postby abiddl94 » Thu Jun 16, 2011 1:34 pm

Hi, I recently purchased a pair of engraved silver bracelets, they both have a dragon facing a bird on them, with what appears to be the sun in the middle. The bird looks like a peacock, may be a phoenix, I'm not sure.

On the hallmark I know the symbol on the bottom right (appears at top right in photo, looks like an F enclosed with a backwards L and an X underneath) means silver, however I was wondering if anyone had any insight as to the rest of the markings. Makers marks maybe
I think they are of a higher content of silver than the standard .925 because they are very bendable. I don't think they are stamped because they vary slightly.

Any help is greatly appreciated
I hope I attached the pictures correctly.
