Maker / Manufacturer: N.S. Meyer / NS Meyer / N. S. Meyer


Today I was going through some of the new posts and on several I came across questions regarding the N.S. Meyer hallmark. Particularly it was asked which hallmarks were used by N.S. Meyer on DIs / DUIs during World War II?

Several members mentioned the one hallmark with the company name and the Meyer shield. However, a couple times it was mentioned that there were others as well.

Would anyone happen to have any examples of those or further reference information?

(NOTE: I am gathering the info in this thread to eventually take it to a hallmarking reference post. So, all members are encouraged to post examples of not only WWII hallmarks but provide info on post-war hallmarks to aid people in the future in dating the period for their N.S. Meyer piece.)

By the way, thanks for the above guys! :)

Here is one, but it doesn't really fit any of the above.

It just reads (at least it appears to):

N.S. MEYER INC.
NEW YORK N.Y.
STERLING


Don't see any shield and the stamp is not raised.

Any ideas?

I have 2 NS MEYER pins with the NS MEYER INC N.Y.C. and raised shield which would have been manufactured prior to 1950. They belong to my uncle he bought them in 1946 or 1947. Still on the paper backing used to display in stores. I think that the listing of this type being 1950's is not correct.
