Due to the following marks have larger fonts and with Taxco letter mark, not part of later registry, "TE-26", the following marks were obviously added many years later "TE-26". Also, marks were not in Taxco registry which was the case with these types of added marks which shop owners even those selling older artifacts were required to add them on older artifacts. On page 10, of Bille Hougart's revised edition of his book: "Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks" , mentions how these registry #'s were sometimes marked on older silver items. For the law required all those involved with silver commerce (trade) , from collectors of older artifacts , shop owners , makers,distributors and retailers. Marks also PRE-date 1947 compulsory eagle registry marks , such as the case with all TAXCO marked silver with out eagle.
