A watch case

Postby amena » Mon Jan 28, 2019 5:51 am

A friend of mine asked me about this punching of a watch case.

I seem to recognize London 1845, but I could not give him an answer when he asked me why there is not the queen's head.
Can anyone tell me?
Thanks

There is no queen's head duty mark because there was no tax to pay. Duty on gold and silver watch cases was abolished on 9 March 1798.

The case maker is John West of 24 Banner Street, St Luke's, London.
