Albert Chain - Help identifying maker and date

Postby InCogKneeToe » Tue Apr 25, 2017 9:04 am

Hi there,

I recently bought a solid silver albert chain and would like to find out a little more about it.

I cannot seem to locate an "City" mark to be able to date is properly, it has the maker marks R.P and the date letter N (capital) I did suspect it was Robert Pringle & Sons but the date letter N doesn't correspond with the years they were in operation.

Hopefully someone here can help me solve this puzzle.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum, Andy.

The date letter looks as if it is a Chester assay, N being the date code for 1896/97. Robert Prngle & Sons were using a R·P mark in a cut-corner rectangular punch at this time so I'm pretty that they are the sponsors.

Awesome, thanks Phil.

1896 that's a lot older than I imagined.

Thanks for your help
