Hello, I have a query about a ring I bought and I want to check the silversmith’s code. This ring was told to me by the seller that it dates back to 1975, but I am afraid that it is a counterfeit because the silversmith’s code I searched for and did not find it until 1975, I mean with the code AP and sorry about my English thanks teamhttps://i.postimg.cc/DZWJmJWY/Screenshot-20220318-222349-Messenger.jpg
The maker’s mark, AP, is not known to me, but the hallmark is quite clearly Birmingham, 1975.
So no fear to be fake or something
The hallmark is 100% genuine
But why the code AP not knowing ???!!!
There are no published comprehensive records for modern makers’ marks so we only know a small number. The Assay Offices keep records and may identify makers if asked.
