World Hallmarks - Volume II - Asia, Middle East, Africa

Providing unprecedented access to regions
practicing precious metal hallmarking, including
Eurasia, Arabian Gulf Nations, North Africa and more.
Also included is the reporting on the marking practices of the
non hallmarking countries of the United States of America,
Canada, China, Mexico, and Australia.

This second volume in the World Hallmarks book series is the culmination of years of collaborative work devoted to investigating and reporting on the precious metal hallmarking practices of countries outside of Europe. Designed as a complement to Volume I, which covered Europe, Volume II presents information on hundreds of foreign hallmarks, providing instructional examples that will help to identify thousands more, and insight to the methodologies used by hallmarking countries which provides a broader reference base for recognizing hallmarks worldwide. Together, Volumes I & II cover marks from over 90 countries, from the 19th to 21st Centuries, with more specific gold, silver, platinum and palladium mark information than in any other publication available to date.
