EPNS is Electroplated Nickel Silver. The initials in the shield is the manufacturer, but I can't tell you who that is; if it's not in Dorothy Rainwater's Encyclopedia, then it's probably English. The number is not helpful, and is just the shape or design number from the factory. Someone else might recognize the maker's initials.
