The book is fully cross-referenced and indexed for quick and handy searches. “Nowhere else are so many of the hallmarks, both known and unknown, brought together in one easy-to-use volume” (Modern Silver Magazine). The 2001 and 2006 editions (both now out-of-print) were reprinted many times to meet demand. This new 3rd edition reveals identities of more mystery marks, includes examples of marks not previously published, and features a new and improved format. Special sections describing fake marks are included for prominent designers! This is a must have for collectors, dealers, appraisers and fans of Mexican sterling silver jewelry and silver crafts.
