For the bargain hunter in you comes a brand new edition of this best-selling pocket guide to identifying and interpreting antique marks. Packed with clear illustrations, "Collins Gem Antique Marks" contains over 3500 hallmarks on silver, gold and platinum, as well as those on Old Sheffield Plate, pewter, pottery and porcelain. Complete with a history of hallmarks and how to read them, plus now with the addition of the most recent hallmarks and details of the new hallmarking system, Collins Gem Antique Marks is the essential companion for anyone interested in buying, selling or collecting antiques.
