I’m new to this silver forum and I would like to join the community. I have started collecting silver pieces about a year and a half ago. I love to search files to uncover mystery hallmarks and learn about the jewelry’s long history.
The pieces that I am identifying are all part of my now current collection, but I’m willing to sell (some) pieces if it is needed for your collection!
So back to business!
I found this beautiful piece in an estate sale, I saw a similar coin purse sell on an auction website, here is the link:
It is lot 797.
I believe this to be a Mardi Gras piece, does anyone know anything about it?
To the right of “sterling” there appears to be a trident, which i believe it to be a sign of the Krewe of Proteus.
Thank you in advance for your help!
