Hi Lisa,

Welcome to the Forum.

Just to get the ball rolling, the design is the Aztec or Mexica calendar. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aztec_calendar

Thank you so much! I have several pieces that I have found in an old barn on my newly acquired property. I have researched for days and have not found a lot of info. I have a feeling this will be a great place to ask questions.

Hi,
For Mexican marks see here:
https://www.925-1000.com/mexican_marks.html

The eagle mark on your brooch was used 1955 to early 1970s.
Number 3 on eagle was used by several Taxco silversmiths.
``JS`` maker has not been identified.
