    I saw a post here the other day that showed a chart of the Peterson Hallsmarks for the sterling silver bands but now I can't find it.

    Anyone know where that post is or can you post that chart for me please?

    Related question. I watched this video made by Peterson where they say all their pipes with the silver band have the hallmarks, but my brand new Peterson 307 has no hallmarks to be found. What's up what that? Are the on the inside of the silver where no one will ever see them?

    That means that the band on your pipe is most likely not silver. What series is the pipe?

    If it is a System Standard 307, the band is not silver. It is nickel, I believe.

    Yup...... Hallmarks are used to indicated that it has been assayed to be sterling silver. No hallmark..... No silver.

    Ah ha. It is a system standard. So that answers that.
