Paula says - "Prior to 1948 there was no requirement by the Mexican government to mark silver jewelry pieces. In 1948 it was required that silver pieces be marked with the Eagle Assay mark along with place of production and silver content in decimal equivalent such as .925. Lack of these marks dates this pin to pre-1948."

About Silver

100% solid silver won't tarnish but it is too soft to use for making jewelry - it could easily be scratched, dented and bent. Sterling silver has a small amount of one or more other metals usually copper, added to the silver. To be called sterling silver, the alloy must contain at least 92.5% pure silver. Sterling silver alloy is harder than pure silver but the added metals also can cause discoloration or tarnish.
