J Toadlena?

Hello… my dad recently passed away and my brother and I each took a piece of antique silver jewelry that my dad loved.

My brother has a big silver belt buckle that is stamped J Toadlena on the back so that is easy to identify but I inherited a ring and I cannot find the makers mark anywhere online. They were both purchased at the same time in Arizona in 1979. I’ll attach a photo of the ring and the stamp on the back.

Thank you so much for any help you’re able to offer.



Welcome to the forum. Can you tell me if you think that mark won the back of the ring is a hallmark? If so, what does it look like to you?

Whatever it is, it is definitely stamped into the silver. It’s fairly deep. I can’t even tell which way is up though. I’m going to take another picture from the opposite way… I keep on searching online and I’m coming up empty.

I looked through a couple of reference books and don’t see anything that resembles it. Good luck, you have a difficult one.

Thank you so much for looking into it for me. I’ll never get rid of it but I hope I can figure it out someday…
