Need help with markings

Postby Withywindle72 » Fri Dec 28, 2018 10:01 pm

I need help identifying what the marks on this Baltic Amber pendant signify. Thanks in advance.

Looks like a p beside a star with hammer and sickle and 875 I know the 875 is silver purity and star with a hammer and sickle is after may of 1958. The other marking is what looks like a backwards R and K4

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Please embed your images so that your query can be fully seen by everybody - some people will not click on links in forum posts.

Hi,
I have cropped and embedded images of marks on amber pendant.
Members of this forum will benevolently answer your question, but please, next time embed your images.
The mark on the left is Soviet (USSR) mark for .875 silver fineness and letter R (in Cyrillic) for Riga assay office.
The maker`s mark ЯК 4 stands for Калининградский янтарный завод (Kaliningrad Amber Factory).
It was made in 1964 based on the digit ``4`` after letters ЯК.

Regards

Thank you,Qrt.S,for correcting me.
I am sometimes confused with Soviet industrial terminology.

@AG2012
Let me put it this way. A "kombinat" is actually a combination of two industrial enterprices (zavods/fabrikas), in which the products of one enterprise serve as raw materials or materials for the other (One looks for amber and delivers it as raw material to the other that process something out of it).
