I have a small silver dish approximately 7" in length by 4" in width. On the back is engraved "Gorham" underneath which are three symbols and below that the number YC688. Is this silver plate or solid silver? Your help will greatly oblige.

All items with a YC number that I have seen are silver plate. Most likely the three symbols above that are E anchor P. Gorham sterling items have the lion anchor G hallmark.
