Thanks for joining us on silver collector.....usually those marks are for the volume of a vessel - i.e. how much liquid it will hold, not the weight.

Regards,

Uncle Vic - back from NYC with some good silver from the flea markets...been a long day flying, will report on the trip tomorrow on the American silver section.
