Re: French and Portuguese marks

Hi JayT,

It goes without saying I have to study the Forum French Maker's Mark Menu. For me it seems the French Ministry of Culture website and entering the initials HL does not work.
Thank you very much for the information and guiding me in the right direction.

Best wishes,

Peter.

Re: Lots of verification marks, tankard or measuring?

Measuring cups with control marks. On a yearly base control marks were punched and only after an official checked the measuring size was correct.
