WILLIAM WYATT - CHARLES RIMER
THE GREED OF GAIN
TAMPERING WITH THE HALL-MARK
At Birmingham Assizes to-day Wm. Wyatt and Charles Rimer, manufacturing jewellers, were sentenced by Baron Pollock to fourteen months' hard labour for feloniously transposing the hall-mark of the Birmingham assay authorities by placing the 18ct. and 15ct. marks on an article of jewellery of an inferior quality. The Judge said the offence was a most serious one, and was purposely committed for the greed of gain.
