Very little silver was assayed at York between 1716 to 1776. In 1717 the Assay Office was closed and remained closed in 1773 when the Parliamentary inquiry was being held. The York Assay Office was reopened shortly afterwards.

In 1787 a new alphabet of Roman letters began starting with a capital A followed by small letters until 1797.
