    Kilt pin hallmarks

    Hello Rabble,

    Hoping for some help with ID on some kilt pin hallmarks. The seller claims it to be circa 1902-03

    One hallmark is Glasgow of Scotland.

    I did look there to no avail. I guess the photo just isn't clear enough.

    If you do a google search for English/Scottish hallmarks online you should be able to determine the date etc.

    It would also help if I looked at the hallmarks right-side up!

    I couldn't match the symbols for the life of me until I rotated the image 180 degrees. It's Edinburgh 1979. I had some help from a flickr user.
