The capital letter is an 'A' and it's in script form. It's a gold medallion, obverse/reverse and is signed by a famous goldsmith. If anyone has information on reading 'Rune numerals' or anything that resembles ancient 'stick' type writing can you please let me know?

Thank You

500 Year Old Antique

Hi Scott thank you for writing in with the following hallmark question:

"I have a gold piece that is very old, approximately 400-500 years. There is a mark on each side that resembles a capital J and A that are joined together and is very faint to the naked eye. Do you know what it could be?"

Scot could you get a close-up photo of the mark and send this in, in a follow-up submission? It gets a bit tricky when the marks are nearly all but disappeared. Without a photo of the mark, it's pretty impossible to know for sure. The good thing is though, it appears you can still read the letters.

What are the shape of the letters you can see, are they overlapping? are they in script? is there any trace of punch mark behind the letters? What is the piece? Examine carefully under good light with a jewelers loupe or magnifying glass if you haven't one.

with regards,
