It is exciting and in the mean time daunting… watch the space for more developments.

Another step…. Hallmark

Some of my silver items are hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office. I can now exhibit the dealer’s notice. The hallmark contains the sponsor’s mark (that’s me) which is EMT, the fineness mark which is 999 for pure silver, assay office mark which is a castle for Edinburgh Assay Office and a year mark which is a “t” for 2018.
