Not Fabritius guardein but Frigast makers mark

This mark is Frigast a maker early in 20th Century.
His mark is often confuses with The guardein Fabritius mark.

And the idea of hawing a 20th Century piece and not a piece made between 1787 to 1823

Its not froad its just a similar mark. Frigast never intended to be mistaken for Fabritius. But are you not familiar then you could be confused.

Thank you hose for this short post.

Had recently spotted an example online which made no sense to me since Fabritius' and Siggaard's working periods as assay masters were over a hundred years apart. Also observed that you had posted an example in your Danish Date Marsk Project for 1930. Now it makes sense. Enjoy reading through these threads as often as I can. They are extremely helpful for those of us who do not have access to many of the older texts that are so often referred to here.

Thanks - I had simply forgotten that I already made this post. Was inspired when I saw that mark again
However the Frigast mark should be listed in the section with guardein marks as its a very confusing similarity if you dont know.
