The marks are correct and as they should be. The item was assayed at London in 1969 and the marks shown are the secondary ones, the full set being applied to main body.

Why would you want to damage the piece by performing an acid test to it?

Thank you, Trev.

Sterling Mark London Datemark No Assay?

Hello. I've searched the forum and on the internet and can't quite get an answer. I have 2 candelabra extensions that I acquired without their original candle holder.

Not familiar with any of the marks. Any other marks somewhere? Could this be a set of pseudomarks?

These marks are on a gorgeous pair of candelabra that seem ...

No Mark Anywhere?

Hello. I have a lid to some piece of holloware--I believe--but I've searched every nook and cranny of it and can't find a mark anywhere. I've even looked for hidden marks in the design.
