Vintage Abalone Pins-Signed Taxco Sterling Silver Leaf

Here are 2 great looking vintage abalone pins purchased at 2 different estate sales. The first is a large oval disc of polished abalone chosen from a wonderful spot on the shell which features a central purple "eye". It's 2.5" wide x 1.5" high. The older style C hook pin back is riveted into the shell. It's in very good condition.

The second is a large sterling silver leaf shaped pin made in Taxco. The silver leaf acts as a bezel holding the abalone along with silver "veins". 2-3/8" x 1-3/8". There are actually 3 different marks. The first reads: Hecho en Mexico (in a straight line). The 2nd is a circle with 925 in the center, Sterling, and Taxco around the lower part of the circle. The upper part is hard to read... it may say ALIVO. The 3rd mark is a 3 eagle, the silver purity stamp verifying that it is silver. The eagle marks were begun by the Mexican government in 1948 and discontinued by 1980. There are some dents in the silver on the back. The safety clasp on pin back is stiff and opens to release the pin shank at a not usual position. There is no abalone in the stem. This is how I acquired it and don't know if it should have something there or not... but I thought it still looked good as it is. It's in good condition with exceptions noted.
