Assayer Kapiton Sidorov

Postby Qrt.S » Sun Dec 13, 2020 5:58 am

I happen to see Miller's Encyclopedia of World Silver Marks vol. I, II. It was a disappointment. The Russian and Ukraine sectors contain a lot of incorrect information and misspellings (probably copied from Watts). Anyway, I stumbled into a name; Kapiton Sidorov. On page 763, Ukraine, is stated that he assayed in Kharkov/Kharkiv (ХАРКIB) 1845 and marked K.C. (The town's name is misspelled; Harkiv.) Anyway, I haven't seen this name mentioned before. Does anybody know something about this Russian assayer or is it picked from the sky?

Hi,
Insert into google the following sentence:
Харьков капитон сидоров серебро 84

Then the first entry on top is pdf titled:

Пробирный надзор : учебное пособие - Электронный
Капитон Сидоров; клеймо-именник мастера — мастер Алексей Уткин [5]. Рис. 49. Клеймо на серебряном

Very long article, worth downloading.
Btw. Town name is spelled differently in Russian and Ukrainian.
Regards
