Hello all,

Martin Gubbins was a keen collector of unusual British hallmarks, and was a major contributor to Jackson's Silver & Gold Marks book. I recall seeing that his collection was sold by Bonham's auction house in England a couple of years ago(?). I was wondering if anyone had a copy of the catalog. It seems like it would be a great reference, if the marks were illusrated.

You might try a query to The Silver Study Group

Gubbins published a comprehensive book on York silver and marks in 1983 (it's not listed on the salon list), but I've never seen a copy nor one offered for sale.
