Poison Ring - Mexico - 3 hallmarks

Postby Chronicler » Mon Mar 09, 2020 5:26 pm

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

Image

Any help in identification very appreciated.

This will explain the "Eagle 3" mark (showing samples at top of Type 1 and Type 2/Silhouette): https://www.925-1000.com/mexican_marks.html

The circular mark reads "TAXCO MEXICO 925" and likely contains the makers three initials inside...too stylistic to easily decipher from the photo.

You'll have to orient it with the 925 at the bottom to read the initials, so flip it over. (In this case, the 925 faces outward rather than inward...if you can see that.)

Hi,
Number 3 is generic mark for Taxco.
