The way I bought this makes me quite certain that this is really an older piece from the 1940s somewhere. But I don´t know for sure that it's a real Hector Aguilar brooch. It looks and feels like good quality. I have looked over and over again on line at stamps shown in "Little book of mexican silver trade and hallmarks" by Billie Hougart (I have to get the book by the way) and I think the stamp very much looks like the one shown in figure A-6 b. But I can´t make up my mind, what if I'm wrong? The needle is not made of silver, but maybe that was how the brooches were maid? So my friends, what do you think?
