That’s fine – there’s a big difference between labelling an artefact (tieing on a tag) as this can be easily removed and marking an artefact. Labels can also be used for loan numbers, temporary numbers, entry numbers. Marking is more permanent and is only used for the Accession number. Even though it can be removed or changed, doing so causes stress and risk to the object (as well as the person…) and so is a last resort.
