We don't offer over 100% of gold fix, that would mean we would be trying to deceive you because if we did that we couldn't make any profit at all! Watch out for the too-high-price-tempter, too common in an unregulated industry. We don't send out fancy free packs and we don't advertise on Tv or in Newspapers. . These are all costs that could reduce the prices we're able to pay you. In fact we don't offer anything that we can't provide, and we don't hide our scrap gold prices.
About Chester Gold & Silver
Silversmith activity in Chester began in 925, but it is well documented only since 1225. Until the end of XVII century hallmarking was not regular although a Guild of Silversmiths was appointed to survey the silver standard. Chester is not one of towns were the act of Henry VI in 1423 allowed the opening of new Assay Offices, but likely because hallmarking activity in Chester was already established and well known since 1225.
The maker mark is in use since 1573 and the date letter (the same also used for two o three years) since 1686. Only after an act of James II in 1865 the Chester city arms (a shield with three wheat-sheaves around a sword) was used as town mark, but many of the silver hallmarked at that time only report the word "sterling" struck on it. Since 1701 the hallmarking system is similar to those used in London (including the presence of the leopard head). Between 1771 and 1779 a shield with three lions in its left part and half of the Chester City arm in the right one was used as town mark. The Assay Office closed down in 1962.
Silver hallmarked in Chester are very rare because no silversmith were operating in the town after 1820/1830. The abundance of Chester hallmarks on silverware dating from about 1880 to 1930 is due to the fact that to Chester Assay Office were sent for hallmarking silver crafted in Birmingham or by local silversmith operating in Liverpool and Manchester
