COLLECTING SILVER, FAKES, BREAKS & ASSAY MARKS
In order to collect Antique Silver successfully, you need to be able to comprehend Assay Marks and identify Fakes & Breaks easily. When buying or selling, you must be able to identify factors which enhance or reduce the value of pieces.

This book, in 40 pages, using over 150 photographic illustrations, endeavours to cover a wide range of assistance on spotting damage and wear, fakes and frauds and how to differentiate the various town assay marks and dates.
The final section lists some useful websites, places to visit to enhance your knowledge, examples of scarcer town marks and a bibliography of useful books.
