TitleSummary Books
DescriptionThese books record daily volume and cost figures for the marking/assaying of silver, gold and platinum items, from which daily, monthly, quarterly and annual totals are calculated and recorded. The earlier eighteenth and nineteenth-century books relate solely to silver, whilst from 1908 columns in the books differentiate figures for silver and gold, and from 1975 a column for platinum is included.

Each book records the date, quantity of items, weight and marking by count and by weight, net weight chargeable with duty and net duty. Later books record separate totals for Sterling and Britannia silver, and the summaries for gold are further subdivided by carat.
