Requesting help with hallmark

Postby KumaKuma » Wed Jun 22, 2016 5:20 pm

I recently acquired this pin. I think it's a Scottish clan pin but I thought it was neat regardless if it is or not. I'm including a pic of the pin and also of the hallmarks punched into the back of it. They appear to be a thistle, 3 castles and the letter W with what appears to be a "TB" possibly staped above them. Can any of your knowledgable advisors tell me what all these marks are? Thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.

The badge for McCall or McAul of Scotland. The motto, Ferio Tego: I strike and defend.The marks for Edinburgh, I think 1952, but I don't know the maker whose mark is T.B.

I should have checked the invaluable Silvermakersmarks site before replying. I think the maker's mark must be T.E for Thomas Ebbutt but at this date used by Hamilton and Inches who had taken over the Ebbutt business.
