Assay Office Objects of Interest

Hi all, thought I would share some interesting pieces connected with the the Various Assay Offices, that I have come across.

Re: Scottish Provincial Mark E.L with sun

Now u say I think it could be Trev, that part of the mark is rubbed. There is a definite pellet between the letters. If i'm reading your thinking - B Lumsden? I convinced myself the fiddle pattern of the spoon would put it outside the dates I thought he worked.

Re: Makers Mark Miss Struck Mark 7 Times

I am guessing unlikely but Trev's link above mentions another Constable with these initials. Would Margaret Constable possibly had her own mark after taking over Williams Business?
