MARKS: the bracelet has the following Egyptian marks: the lotus flower, which is the Egyptian national mark used from 1946-present; a silver fineness fineness mark which is unreadable (but the silver has been acid tested as 900 silver which is the highest of the Egyptian standards); a date mark, showing that this bracelet was assayed between 1965 and 1968; there are also a few additional unreadable marks.

In addition, the ends of the bracelet have elaborate Turkish Tughra marks, the type of which was used in the 19th century.

AGE: undetermined, and no newer that the mid-1960's, but possibly 19th century due to the presence of the Tughra marks.
