Mark Committee

In 2009 the Leimatoimikunta (Hallmark Committee) was founded by members of the Finnish precious metal industry with the aim of collecting, in electronic form, Finnish gold- and silversmiths' responsibility marks for the years 1373-1970. The committee members represent different areas of expertise, such as legislation, historical precious metal knowledge and government activities.
