Re: Lots of verification marks, tankard or measuring?

I wanted to show you the earliest that I can read, "77" or 1877. Several others that I can't read that were buffed off, but it may go back a few years earlier. Amazingly they used/inspected this for over 30 years! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48967607523_5963fddb3a_c.jpg https://liv...

Re: Lots of verification marks, tankard or measuring?

Good to know, thanks. I'll put it in my copper collection. From Arizona in America, we see a lot!

Re: Lots of verification marks, tankard or measuring?

Thanks for the ID. I'm assuming it was to measure liquid, like grog or beer? Are the numbers under the 6 xx 7 the dates? Several are 04 through 10, so 1904-1910? Any idea what the crosshatched shield means?

Lots of verification marks, tankard or measuring?

Hi, Sorry to post copper here, but I'm getting stumped finding out what this "cup" or tankard really is anywhere on the internet. It could be a liquid measuring cup, or maybe a tankard? I'm American, and don't know what the marks around the rim are, but think they are "verification&qu...

Re: Harrison Bros & Howson carving - Sterling handle mark?

But there don't seem to be many "sterling" marked H-H out there. I find those that are, have UK style hallmarks. https://ebth-com-production.imgix.net/2019/05/06/08/10/15/7d6a2de2-5bab-4daa-ad22-b68c1936ff29/1557144473134-021ca5f880ab887d900b8f51d7765258687a77a53be79bb4dc38fd6fefc7b1b2.JPG...

Re: Harrison Bros & Howson carving - Sterling handle mark?

Thanks. That seems to be a good educated speculation. Mine was less so, just guessing H-H allowed others to put handles on their blades, or sold them unfinished. Could these be solid silver, or just filled?

Harrison Bros & Howson carving - Sterling handle mark?

Hi, I have searched and cannot find why this Harrison Bros & Howson carving set has a "Sterling D" mark on the handle. I'm no expert (USA here), but I thought mostly American companies used "Sterling". Also, there aren't the 4 hallmarks, just the word and one letter. Obviousl...
