Description: Woodbridge, Antique Collectors' Club, 2004. Hardcover. Gray boards with gilt stamped lettering. Glossy color-illustrated dust jacket with white lettering. xxii, 520 pp. BW illustrations. "This is the first publication in a single work of all known Chester punch marks, and continues the tradition of the standard volumes of Jackson, Grimwade, Culme and Pickford. It is also the first time that the twentieth-century Chester marks have been published. It is produced in dictionary format, in alphabetical order from 1570, the date of the earliest known mark, to 1962 at which time the Chester assay office was closed. The authors, both members of the silver society, were given unlimited access to the Chester assay office records covering 1686 to 1962, and to the Chester Goldsmith's Company records dating from the 16th century." -Amazon.
