Hello to all! I am a school teacher and a Mexican silver collector. I just bought a set of earrings at an estate sale and cannot identify the mark. Perhaps someone here could help me, please?
Here is a photo-sorry I'm not better at this!

The mark is under the screw post on the back and I can't get a photo of it. It is MPC in a monogram circular style. There is also printing around the monogram but it is very worn. Looks like it says 'Mexico' and 'Ioualas925' and the rest is worn off, but there is a faint impression of what might have been an eagle mark. As I said, they have screw on backs and are about 3/4 of an inch wide.
Thanks in advance for any help!
