Hallmarking in Austria-Hungary ~ After 1866

The Austro-Hungarian Empire succeeded the Austrian Empire in 1867. At this time the Dual Monarchy decreed a uniform system of hallmarking for the entire empire. The Austro-Hungarian Empire was dissolved, in 1919, after the end of World War I, and its hallmarks retired in 1922.
