HI, CAN ANYONE HELP WITH THE MAKERS MARK ON THIS SWALLOW PENDANT IT IS H J. THE HALLMARK HAS A REARING LION AND THE OTHER 2 MARKS ARE UNCLEAR. THE DATE LETTER LOOKS LIKE AN OLD SWIRLY F. I THINK IT MAY BE A HJALTASTEYN DESIGN BUT AM UNSURE OF THE YEAR IT WAS MADE. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS.[/img]
