There are five hallmarks located on the front side of the shield.
1. The hallmark depicts a cartouch frame with the cypher 13 within a circle in the center. The circle is surmounted by the letter D and is surrounded by the date 1819.
This is an Austro-Hungarian authority mark and the letter D indicates Lvov.
cf. R3 vol. IV, no. 7986.## Divis p. 222, no. 1901 ## Lepszy, p. 231, no. 191
2. The hallmark is indentical as the first but the date is 1920.
3. The hallmark depicts a cartouche centered by the letters F and T combained together and surmounted by a small letter D. This is a tax mark for large items between 1810-1824. The letter D represents Lvov. cf. Divis, p. 95, no. 564.
4. The hallmark depicts the letter N above the letter S within a oval frame. It is probably an artist mark but it is unidentified.
5. The hallmark depicts three letters within an arrow-like frame. It is unidentified.
