Poison Ring - Mexico - 3 hallmarks

I'm trying to determine the age of a silver Poison Ring from Mexico. It has 3 hallmarks: - STERLING SILVER - A number 3 in a unknown shape - A text bend into a circle, all I can read in it is Mexico https://i.postimg.cc/xdkSbht5/20200309-143033.jpg Any help in identification very appreciated.

Poison Ring - Fineness mark 915/815/916/816 - "Russia"

I purchased a silver Poison Ring / Box Ring titled as originated from Russia. However, I could find only one hallmark that is clearly a finesse mark https://i.postimg.cc/VkVPZJnF/20200309-2121-002-0-000.jpg I can't be sure but it looks like 915 or 815 or 916 or 816. Now I was looking around the 925-...

H does not fit the spacing.
S also does not seem as a possibility.

But did any maker comes to mind?

I do not fully understand.

But I forgot to mention that the images shows the same mark but one is upside down.

Unclear Gold Makers Marks from Budapest/Pest 1867-1872

https://i.postimg.cc/0jrRjvSh/Unknown-Hallmark.jpg I'm looking for any information on the hallmark I found on a golden ring. I assume it is a Makers Mark. I tried to recreate it basing on the shape and the visible parts. Maybe it will help in some way. The maker, basing on other marks, worked in Bu...

Re: Gold Ring - 2 diamonds - 1 sapphire - [3 Hallmarks to identify]

But it is possible for an item to have 2 city marks and be valid?

The mark with fox head bearing P indicates the ring was made i Budapest, Hungary.The other mark was possibly added later.

P is short for Pest because there were two towns in the past, i.e. Buda and Pest,The Danube river between them, then they united to become Budapest.Traditionally,letter P was assigned to them.

What if the dog has P on the left?

Re: Gold Ring - 2 diamonds - 1 sapphire - [3 Hallmarks to identify]

So on your photo someone placed twice the letter C ? Why the C4 marks are so differyou ( your photo and mine)? Dog`s head mark for silver was different. Prague was in Austria-Hungary Empire at the time and its assay office was assigned town number C (not date letter). A was for Vienna, B for Budapes...

Is C the date letter then? The hallmark with the dogs/foxs head is listed as a mark for silver. Why is it on the golden rin...

Oh, wow. I wasn't expecting to receive a reply so fast and so specific. So the big Hexagonal mark is with the dog/fox. The smaller one might have indeed C and 4, as I suspected. Do you have maybe a photos of those marks in better shape ? Are there any informations about the oval mark? Hi, Austria-Hu...

Oh, sorry. I can't find the EDIT option for my post. Should I just repost those photos ? Hi, Welcome to the Forum. Please choose another photohost, one that doesn't apply an advertising banner across the marks we need to see. https://postimages.org (choose 'Share', then copy the 'Hotlink for forums'...
