Poland

In the late 18th Century, Polish lands were divided amongst the superpowers of Russia, Prussia, and Austria. Hallmarking for each section fell under the systems of the ruling empires.
Following World War I, an independent state of Poland came into existence for the first time in 123 years and a national system of hallmarking was legislated in 1920.
