While contemplating WEV's post What do we have here?, I found a mention of Jamaica silver assay marks (approximately around 1756).

I don't have the time right now to see what might be learned about early Jamaican silver marks.

Perhaps another member has something to share about Jamaican silver/gold marks?

I did a little Internet trolling around and captured several page images parts that mention Jamaica silver. After some editing; so what was captured is more inline with the Guidelines....
