Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: ...They have supplied to the London Hall during the last three years over 100 in each year. The Birmingham Assay Office obtained from the Inland Revenue Office, in 1875, as many as 102 punches, and they would serve probably for several years, but having them from that source is not compulsory. The only stamp which is by law issued by the Inland Revenue is the duty mark of the Sovereign's head; if made elsewhere it would be a forgery. It will be observed in the following impressions that many of the stamps have more than one mark, the sets of two or four being grouped together, so as to be affixed to the plate at one blow. The largest marks for silver are stamped separately. The sizes of the marks vary from a quarter of an inch down to a sixteenth. MARKS FOR THE OLD STANDARD GOLD. From 29th May 1878 to 29th May 1879.
