925 " sterling silver marks this as 92.5% pure silver with 7.25% building is an alloy , usually copper . A " 975" marking can only mean 97.5% pure silver and indicates a high quality item sterling . Not often seen , and my guess is that this should be a very old piece or a new element that uses the extra silver production.
