Good evening everyone,
I wondered if people would like to give their opinions on security marking as I had an experience last year that made me think.
One of the very first purchases I made as a “newbie” was a job lot on an auction site.
I enjoyed examining them for their marks and researching them. On one I found a post code,( zip code) engraved underneath and found it related to a robbery several years earlier. Police forces are putting these things on the internet more often these days.
The item was only valued at about £15 but It was returned to the owner with no problems to myself.
I am seriously considering having a few of my favorite items engraved with my post code on the base.
I know that visible monograms, reduce the “desirability” of items in many cases but I feel that security marks may be viewed differently.
I would love to harvest opinions from all.
