Description of this Book

This handy-sized guide is drawn from the extensively revised edition of Jackson's Silver and Gold Marks of England, Scotland and Ireland, published by the Antique Collectors' Club in 1989. Ever since its publication in 1905, English Goldsmiths and Their Marks, or Jackson's, has been the 'bible' for scholars, dealers and collectors, selling in hundreds of thousands. The Antique Collectors' Club revised edition contains approximately 15,000 marks, with over 10,000 corrections to the second edition published in 1921. This pocket edition contains complete cycles of silver marks for all the important Assay Offices, with variations shown for gold, platinum, Britannia Standard, import marks, etc., and has been updated to 1991 to include current assay marks. The Pocket Edition of Jackson's Hallmarks contains 1,000 makers' marks listed alphabetically by mark, with comments as to rarity, value and the speciality of the maker (e.g. spoons), making it the best available pocket guide to hallmarks. Other small guides to hallmarks based on outdated information have been rendered obsolete by this pocket edition, which is the most accurate, complete and up to date guide on the market.
