Sterling Belt - Mystery Mark - Amber

Postby 925nat » Sat Jan 16, 2021 12:34 pm

This is a larger men's size belt.
It's on a small belt (I assume it's from the store, and then you'd put it on your own belt)

I assume that the large amber piece is original to it.
The amber piece has a really unusual mark, and then a series of smaller marks i can't make out.
the larger mark is hard to deciper, since i'm not sure which side is up.
there are no marks i could find on the buckle itself, unless it's under where the leather is.

Does this look familiar to anyone?

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

Can you post a close-up of the small set of marks? From what I can see they appear to be Polish hallmarks:

If I'm correct, this would fit in nicely as there is a large amber industry in that part of the world.

Hi,
Trev is right; looks like Gdansk 875 Polish mark, used since 1986.
See here:

(Woman`s head, capital letter G and 875 on the left).
Anyway, larger images of the marks are needed for confirmation.

I tried a few lenses to try to capture those marks, i don't know why they're so small, the back panel is relatively massive :-)

that def looks like a G and 875
does that larger square hallmark look like anything?

maybe it's an MG? it's hard to tell which way is up

Modern Polish marks are not well documented. Many private silversmiths emerged after the fall of communist regime.
At least we know it was made in Gdansk.
