Very well done you and congrats on your first gold. ::g

Just google ‘gold makers hall marks’ and you’ll find all the info you need :D Too much info to print here unless you can show the marks inside the ring.

Yes it was. Not very deep but a nice crisp signal. Justified to myself buying a Nox800 on the back of it!!
