I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find definitions of some silver marking on the internet??? I'm in the middle of a huge fight with a seller from eBay that doesn't know her markings and is looking for "proof" that e p n s stands for electro plated nickel silver (right??) Thanks"

You can refer the seller to this forum. Any number of us would be glad to explain what EPNS is. For example see the post - gorham pattern? where Ariane asks:
......what do the letters "E.P.N.S." stand for? Does this mean plated? (It appears on a number of other inherited items, all with varied markings)

and my response:
......As it regards your other question about "E.P.N.S.", it means Electro Plated Nickel Silver. In other words, it means silver plate.
