“This handbook has been compiled to enable collectors and dealers to trace the hallmarks on silver objects from over 30 countries.  Starting from the letters or symbols constituting the mark, the reader can quickly identify the country and town of origin, the date when the mark was used and often the purity of the silver.  The book illustrates and explains nearly 2000 marks arranged under letters in alphabetical order, numerals, human figures, mammals, birds, plants.  Heavenly bodies, etc., so that any of the marks can be easily found.
The introduction describes the various in force in each country since the first known records.  There is also a Bibliography for each country, to guide the reader who needs more detailed or specialist information.”
