    I bought this amber pendant months ago. Upon closer check it looks like the silver was once gold-plated (I noticed it only after I checked the photos today :D )
    The pendant is stamped with makers name (first sign is not readable, then russian "ja" letter and then K) and with russian hammer & sickle in star mark and 875 silver mark (used after 1958). On the star left side there is something as well, from what I saw on internet there could be a letter indicating russian city, but again, this is not readable for me, might be russian "g". Any ideas? (pls check the detail photo)

    The maker was identified by Vladimir as the Kaliningrad Amber Factory. Spasiba :)

      The first printing is "? ?" "???????? ???????????" it is the seal of the amber factory in Kaliningrad!

      I do not understand why this site restricts writing in English only! On my language is written in Cyrillic and some things can not express in English!

      Thank you Vladimir a lot! I googled the factory, it is very interesting!

      Ah, I understand it now, the "ja" is for "jantar", amber. Amber is called jantar in slovak language as well.
