The back is marked with a lower case m within a C; Taxco Sterling Hecho en Mexico and the Eagle 3. Diameter is 2-1/4". The pendant bale opening is large enough for a thick chain. It can also be worn as a brooch. It is in very good condition. Miguel Melendez learned his skills at the Spratling workshop and then also worked with Los Castillo and Margot de Taxco.
