Marks on Russian Silver Earrings

Postby rachelba » Mon May 11, 2020 1:55 pm

Hi, i have acquired some old (maybe early 20th C) Russian Silver earrings. They are Russian Nephrite Jade in a 875 silver setting. I have been trying to figure out the hallmark. There is mark consisting of a number and two letters: '2 C Ю', which could be an artel number, but I am not sure. Then there is another mark (a 'C' a hammer and sickle and the 875 mark). I am not really able to discern the third mark. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Dating:
This mark was introduced in 1958 (May 7).
Reference:Postnikova-Loseva No 3952,letter C in front of the star is the code for Sverdlovsk region assay office.

thanks, that's really useful. I was wondering, is the star for Ekaterinburg the one around the hammer and sickle or is it the third mark? Also, is there any date mark?

There is another one punch (third mark) at earring. Perhaps, it is import mark of Czechoslovakia
