1 1/2", 2", and 2 1/2" diam. All silver and are hall marked as shown, any ideas what they are??? Cheers Alan.
Yeah, I wondered about that too. :-kScott":1fius5zv said:Bit strange that the pieces have been assayed before being turned into anything. If you spun those you'd remove the assay marks
Chris, you would buy the silver unmarked and normally send finished or part finished pieces or sections thereof to the assay office for marking. Engraved pieces would be assayed before engraving so that the mark can be made less obvious amongst the engraving. Not sure but I think you can also point the Assay Office in the direction of where you'd like the mark put.Can you buy "raw" silver without an assay mark? If you wanted to use silver for jewellery or inlaying into a bit of wood and you needed a lump of silver, would it come in round disks with an assay mark possibly?
