More Stamp Questions


#1

Thanks everyone for the responses to my inquiry for sources for
quality stamps. Now I have another one asssociated with using
them.

I am working mostly in silver PMC. That will require a .999
stamp. But I also have begun accenting the silver with 24K gold
PMC. I have no way of knowing how much gold is on each piece.

Is it legal in the US to stamp both the .999 and 24K on the back
of the piece? My findings (posts, usually, are sterling).

Please tell us about putting 24k on using PNC, how thick, can
you use slip etc . Thanks!

As far as I know it is not legal (I do something like this
however myself), you may only legally stamp with the lowest
value/least precious material. Charles

Charles,

I’m not sure, and I will check, but I think as long as you are
mixing types of metals, you can stamp both. For example, pieces
made with both 18k gold and platinum are usually stamped
something like “plat/18k” and I have seen silver and gold pieces
stamped both 14k and sterling. I get back when I find out for
sure.
