"The Silson primary hallmark appears on jewelry designs manufactured circa 1940 - 1944. These items are made of silver plated pot metal and were designed by Spratling to be commercially produced in quantity by the Victor Silson Company. Another version of this same Silson hallmark has Patent Pending across the center and was used prior to the final issuance of the actual patent. During the period that Silson was producing the silver plated Spratling designs for necklaces, bracelets, and pins, Spratling was concurrently producing these designs in 980 silver and marking them with his primary and tertiary marks of the period as shown above."
