Unidentified Swan

Postby JanetsBears » Mon Oct 22, 2018 5:40 pm

Hi,

I'm new to silver collecting so please be gentle! Fell in love with a silver swan but really struggling to find out anything about it or the (Spanish?) maker.


Can't see any way of posting photos - can anyone throw any light on how to do it?


Thanks,

Janet

Thanks Trev, I'm not very technical but I'll give it a go.

Well, it looks like I've got images! Any information on the swan or the marks would be great - my days of detective work online haven't given me much of a clue other than I think it originates in Spain. Any pointers at all would be really appreciated.

Hi,
Pentagram is indeed Spanish mark indicating minimum .915 fineness, used since 1934.
Hexagonal mark is maker`s mark which I cannot identify.

Go to the actual forum - click on the 'Other Countries' bit at the top of this thread - then there's a button for new posts top left.
