Help with D7 mark. Possible Austro Hungarian?

Postby 42jbb » Wed Aug 16, 2017 10:35 am

Hi, I have a table spoon with marks that look Austro Hungarian but i can't find the exact match in any books. It is the D7 at the top of the mark that I can't find in any of my books. Does anyone know where D7 is the mark for?

Any answers are most appreciated.

It is the so-called Radlpunze from Austro-Hungary. D7 or D2 stands for the assay office. I think member huszas will tell you more.

Above assay offices are after 1867.
Your mark is 185.... Therefore D stands for Lwow, but I have no record of sub-offices.

D7 was the code for Tarnów, Galicia (now Poland) from 1824 to 1865. I find in Galicia directories of the period a pearl dealer Herz Engel in 1855 and an ironmonger Judah Engel in 1862, but doubt that either of them is a likely candidate.
