WORLD HALLMARKS BY WILLIAM B. WHETSTONE AND ASSOCIATES 2ND EDITION ULTRA IMPORTANT FOR THE COLLECTOR A MUST!!!!!!!
STOCK NUMBER #BOOK------As a general rule I never give out free advertising on my pages unless it pertains information second to none for the collector or pertaining to horological items and this book fits the bill in all ways you could possible imagine. This is a hard cover book with 380 pages packed with important information with most world hallmarks from the 1700's to present date, many many countries are involved and it took five years to complete. I have know Bill Whetstone since Gxd only knows when lol ! From beginning to end it was his passion and here it is. If you have a hallmark it is in this book and can guide you to proper information that you will NOT find anywhere else. The price is 250.00 USD and well worth it as far as I am concerned and as you see I bought one from Bill and I can now trace rare late 1700's and 1800's pocket watches by, the case hallmarks on the inside of the case, i.e., town marks, port of entry marks, sterling, gold, Assay's office stamps, year of production stamps, it's all here in this book and it is once again a must.
