I have looked in Jackson's, and I see that the crown identifies Sheffield marks. From there I get lost, since the second mark seems to be a crowned leopard's (?) head. The last mark is almost totally obliterated, so it provides no clue (to me, at any rate).

If it is of any help, these marks (and the word STERLING) appear on the cap of a smelling salts bottle that dates (probably) to the early part of the last century.

I don't think these are English marks - doesn't loo0k like the Sheffield verion of the crown to me - but I am afraid I cannot offer any useful alternative suggestion.
