5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended
An absolute must for any collector from dealers to the novice interested in silverware. This book is laid out in very easy to use format making hallmark reference somewhat idiot proof and includes invaluable information on Makers and their marks.

This review is from: Jackson's Hallmarks: English, Scottish, Irish Silver and Gold Marks from 1300 to the Present Day (Paperback)
This small paperback is bound so tight and the print is so small it is virtually useless, it turned out that I didn't need it anyway as all the information I was looking for is now easily accessible on line, as with so many reference books - charity shop now has this

3.0 out of 5 stars bit of a faff, 6 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jackson's Hallmarks: English, Scottish, Irish Silver and Gold Marks from 1300 to the Present Day (Paperback)
A lot of information, but not that straight forward to use for a 'beginner' who isn't sure of what they're looking for in the first place. Probably more suitable for the more experienced or proffesional.

This review is from: Jackson's Hallmarks: English, Scottish, Irish Silver and Gold Marks from 1300 to the Present Day (Paperback)
If you are into silver, gold, etc and do not want a massive reference book, this is the one to go for, its concise, well written, covers all the relevant info and is a good sized (eg: small) book to make it handy for travel, carrying around,leave it in the car, etc. Recommended.
