Anyone recognize this mark?

I took in a large lot of 60s, 70s, and 80s pieces recently and three have this mark. Any ideas?

Post eagle mark mark?

This sterling cuff looks like post-eagle mark Mexican sterling. But I can't quite tell if it's a TH or a TM. And while most pieces I've seen have the location and last name initial followed by the registration number, this one just says "NP", in a smaller font, and underlined. Any idea of ...

Modern Italian .925 Hallmark?

Heavy sterling ring with braided rope motif. From a group of QVC and HSN-type jewelry. It's marked inside with three cartouches, each raised from the surface: "925", "ITALY" and then this maker's mark, I think. They descend from left to right. If the orientation stays the same fr...

Re: Help with maker's mark on American / native American pendant?

For those playing at home: This is the mark of Southwest US (New Mexico / Oklahoma) silversmith Wanda Shiflett. She was kind enough to confirm that this stone is Burro Creek Jasper (AZ), and that this piece was an early one, made as early as 1976 but no later than 1994.

Help with bear fetish(?) mark

Might be a "B" or an "8" in what looks like a bear fetish? On a better quality sterling buffalo nickel ring I'm guessing 70s or 80s vintage but not positive on that:

Help with maker's mark on American / native American pendant?

Purple stone, about 3" long.

The mark seems to be a stylized "WL", but the orientation may be wrong. Thoughts on maker and/or stone material?

Thanks, @dognose. At least I got the right forum? :D

Understand it's an eagle mark, but still can't find the maker. Any thoughts appreciated.

Two American sterling amulet / pendant marks. ID help?

First appears to be a mid-century piece with green turquoise / silver matrix and smaller turquoise cabochons. About 3" in diameter. It kind of looks like a scale or road sign with maybe a "157" ? http://www.fourbore.com/mala2.jpg http://www.fourbore.com/mala1.jpg (admin edit - one ite...

Help with a sterling ring maker's mark?

Heavy amber & sterling ring, I'm assuming the © symbol = 1985.

Stylized "F"? Upside-down "J"?

Re: Confirm date, help with maker on George III mug?

Thank you, silvermakersmarks! I looked into those marks. I liked John Robbins as a good match. And then I found this. I know this was a common form by this period. But if seems at least a strong possibility. At least it doesn't rule out Robbins as a possible maker. Here is my new piece (1793): http:...

Confirm date, help with maker on George III mug?

Just got this mug. The seller claimed it was 1793, and that the maker is James Phipps I. The date letter looks correct for 1793, but the date letter for 1813 looks similar, too, and the duty mark could allow for either. I couldn't find a mark for Phipps in the marks on this site. It doesn't look unl...

Consensus on I*M hallmark?

Hello! I just got a 1770 London sterling tankard. The dealer believed the mark to be Jacob Marsh. The auction from where they acquired it identified it as either Marsh or John Moor (Grimwade 3658). I personally think it's John Muns (Grimwade 1518) based on a previous discussion on this board: http:/...

Incidentally, the baluster mug is John Payne, I believe, London 1774. Care to check my math?
