This project has been 10 years in the making and now documents over 11,500 silver marks on 1,000+ pages and subpages. It is regularly updated as I find and photograph new examples of silver hallmarks and makers' marks. To navigate the site, it is easiest to use the green menu bar at the top of the screen. If you don't know the country of origin of the marks you are researching, the "World Hallmarks" page is probably the best place to start. If you're interested in finding new and used informational books on silver, visit the book store. To view a list of references used to create this website, see the bibliography.
Enjoy your time here, I hope you find the site informative and useful.
Unfortunately, I don't have the time to answer the many questions emailed to me, if you have a silver mark question that is not covered by the main site, visit the
Online Encyclopedia of Silver Marks, Hallmarks & Makers' Marks
