    Hello 4thskorpion,

    Judging from the 'woman's head' silver hallmark, this item is likely of pre-war vintage. As such it may be better to have your question moved to the appropriate forum. Is this a badge?

    Regards,
    Tony

    I am glad that you can see a 'woman's head' in the mark! To me it looks like something that would be part of an Rorschach inkblot test

    The mark's are on the reverse of an NSZ-ZJ (Narodowe Siły Zbrojne -Związek Jaszczurczy) ryngraf that I have. I forgot to add the main image with the hallmark...

    The hallmark is shown upside down in your picture, so itís not quite obvious on initial glance that thereís a headscarfed woman hiding there.

    Your ryngraf is pre-war made with the NSZ jaszczurka shield added later. Iíll check to see if I can ID the maker marks. Off the cuff itís not a familiar maker.

    As these are pre-WW2 marks Iíll move the thread over where you may have a better likelihood of getting an ID.

    A very nice item by the way!

    Best,
    Tony

    Thanks Tony, your line drawing for reference certainly helps
    The ryngraf belonged to a NSZ-ZJ soldier from Białystok region if that helps with identification of the mark?

    I believe the "W" in the silver mark indicates Warsaw as the place of manufacture, which was the busiest silversmith centre by far in pre-war Poland. I checked my very limited references for an ID for ďAChĒ but have come up dry. I will keep an eye out for you though.

    Cheers Tony!
    I did find confirmation of 'W' as being Warsaw
    'ACh' remains elusive though.
