I.O (or O.I) on buckle of 1791

Postby buckler » Fri Jul 26, 2013 1:26 pm

The buckle which carries the mark below is slightly unusual in form and carries a George III duty mark in an oval punch, a Lion Passant Guardant in the typical pointed bottom punch of London, plus a typical London date letter "q" for 1791/1792 . I would have no hesitation about attributing to London except that very rarely are London buckles datelettered before "r" .
And I cannot trace the mark


My mind goes perhaps to an unrecorded London mark of John Ollivant of Manchester.

All suggestions welcome !
