The Bradbury's book of hallmarks is a brilliant guide to understanding and reading hallmarks on gold, silver and platinum jewlery. It is a fantastic aid for begginers with the changes in markings described clearly and tables to explain the marks of origin, standard and date. Using this book a compleate begginer can read an entire set of hallmarks very quickly and easily without getting confused. The book itself is also small enough to slip in your pocket so that it is close to hand when you need it.

This book makes the reading of hallmark's an easy process, after receiving many vintage items from my grandmother at christmas, I was intrigued to find out when they were made and where they came from. This book did it for me. I do not have much knowledge of hallmark's and the book made it a breeze, love it.

An excellent book for finding your way around the different hallmarks. Easy to use and pocket sized, this enables you to take it with you when visiting flea maerkets or auctions. Well worth the money.

By heretic666 TOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 April 2013
Format: Paperback
Jacksons is obviously the ultimate guide to hallmarks from these shores but can seem like overkill for the beginner. Cumbersome in weight and content as few people come across sixteenth or seventeenth century silver and some of the smaller assay office products remain elusive even to the professional dealer.
Bradbury is the type of guide that covers most of the least exotic common or garden silver one is likely to come across and afford. It is useful in size as in small enough for the pocket or glovebox in the car. If the mark you are seeking is not here it might mean the piece you are investigating could be scarce enough and valuable enough to warrant a copy of Jacksons if you have no access to a silver expert with encyclopaedic knowledge

Format: Paperback
Excellent, handy-sized little book for identifying the various town marks and dates. Fits neatly in a pocket and gives a comprehensive coverage for identifying silver, and other precious metals, to the date of assay.
