New research regarding American Silversmiths

I have done a bit of new research regarding Indiana Silversmiths since my book on that subject was published in 1984. The following marks illustrated below are newly discovered ones that are not illustrated in my book. All silver marked by Indiana makers must be considered scarce, since so little of it exists today, especially outside a few important collections. I am happy to share my research with my collecting friends and hope it will aid you in your search for silver from the Hoosier State.

For those who have a copy of "Indiana Silversmiths, Clock Makers and Watch Makers, 1779-1900" it might be a good idea to copy the following marks and insert them in the back of the book with the sixty-four marks illustrated in the book. If you would like a copy of the book, I still have a few at 49.00 plus shipping of 5.00. The book is hardbound, 271 pages, with information on nearly 300 silversmiths and related tradesmen. Many photos and illustrations.
