Danish Silver Hallmark Confusion

Hello! This Mark appears to show three Towers showing Danish silver, but it also says "plet" so I'm confused. Is this plated or silver?

More than likely a damaged (2) two tower mark for silverplate wares. Full info. on Gero history and example of two tower (round, not oval) mark on Gero plet: http://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic ... 590#p70278

Hi,
``D Hammer A`` mark stands for Dansk Arbedje (Danish product).
It was introduced by a Danish trade association founded in 1908 to promote Danish made products.Therefore, not associated with any maker and found both on silver and silver plate.
As explained above it`s Danish 2 tower silver plate mark.
Regards
