Protecting himself from wind and sun, this Vintage Sterling Silver Mexican Man in his traditional Sombrero and Serape pendant is sure to please no matter if you are a collector of Vintage Mexican Sterling Silver or simply love all things from Mexico.
Measuring 1” long (without the jump ring, jump ring adds 1/8” to his length) and 1/2” wide at his widest point, I obtained him from the local estate sale of a well traveled octogenarian.
He was without a chain so I have added one for your convenience, however please do note that the chain is not sterling and was not original to the pendant. (it's free, my gift to you) The chain (8” closed) makes this entire necklace 9 1/8” long.
Markings on the back are MC / 177 / 925 / Mexic with the “O” not finding its mark on the small surface.
This mark was officially enacted around 1979 when Mexico retired the Eagle mark, The “M” stands for Mexico City, and the “C” stands for the first letter in the last name of the maker. The number 177 means that she/he was the 177th person to be issued this fineness mark that had a last name starting with the letter “C”. The 925 denotes that it is guaranteed to be Sterling Silver, and Mexico means the country of origin. (Mexico without the “O” simply means the jewelers aim was slightly askew when placing the mark to begin with.)
