After his short-lived partnership mark with Thomas Evans (Grimwade 2747), he entered a sole mark as a Bucklemaker on 19 October 1784. (Grimwade page 395) at 26, Mansell Street, Godman's Fields
This mark sometimes occurs on Sugar Tongs , often with an incuse George duty mark . I've never seen it on a buckle (yet !)

It's frequently misidentified as the mark of John Lampfert (Grimwade No 1490) who actually died or was retired by 1773
These are two marks, on two separate sugar tongs, the bottom being two examples on a incuse duty marked pair.
