Ethiopia Order of Holy Trinity Hallmark - Help Needed

Recommended Posts

I have an Ethiopian Order of Holy Trinity grand cross breast star in my collection. It has a hallmark which is unknown for me. It looks like the the top row has two letters 'A' and 'B'.

What do you think it could be Arthus Bertrand as the manufacturer? What does the other marks mean?

Thanks,

Balazs

Balazs,

I think it reads, in abbreviation, 'Arthus Bertrande et Cie' ( and Company). The lower mark is probably some manner of French regulatory or silver mark.

Kind regards,

Owain

I have found that the lower mark is also an Arthus-Bertrand mark. It is a wheel gear and a star above. The AB & Cie and the lower mark together was used from 1911.

Very nice.  I've never seen this maker's mark in my collection.

Thanks for adding to our education on the subject.
