Re: British hallmarks on Sugar scissor

If you are a collector of tongs you will know that maker's mark and sterling lion passant are normally the only marks present on 18th century examples. Your first maker is GS and almost certainly London. The lion passant is of the type used from 1739 to 1755 but I am not certain about the identity o...

Re: I would like a year date on this E Smith item please

There isn't one in your picture. Suggest you look at the other half of the box. Conventionally each part had a partial hallmark.

Re: 1705 Newcastle Francis Batty II Hanovarian Rattail Spoon

Newcastle date letters were theoretically changed in May each year; i.e. the 1705 D on your spoon would still have been in use in May 1706. In addition records show that the new date letter punch was not necessarily always ordered in time for use at the start of the new assay year.

Re: Unidentified “AS” c 1970’s mark

There are no comprehensive references for most 20th century marks so, unless one of our readers happens to know the answer, I don't think that we will be able to help you. However, if you would like to ask the London Assay Office at Goldsmiths Hall (https://www.assayofficelondon.co.uk/contact) and t...

Re: reading 101?

It looks like it could be a retailer's name. I gave you the manufacturer's name and the composition - electroplated, not silver.

Re: reading 101?

At the top is a castle and below that the letters E P M. EP stands for electroplate[d] and the whole abbreviation is probably for electroplated metal. The castle and this form of lettering show that the manufacturer is Corbell & Co of Scottsdale, Arizona.

The mark is not very well defined but it certainly looks like Joseph Gloster's.

Re: Birmingham, I think 1895

Yes, that's definitely 1895/96. Often confused with the "b" for 1876/77, but the differences are obvious when compared side-by-side.

Re: No date letter. Who is HA? Real mark?

The lion passant and leopard's head are of the form used in the date letter cycle 1896 to 1915. A partial hallmark is normally seen where the item is part of a larger assemblage so there may have been more of these combined with another object. HA is Harris Adelstein.
