    Click on the link in my comment above. I believe it may be Amos Munson. The timeline is right for that style of spoon. 1760ís - 1780.

    I worked solid all day and didn't take a look, tomorrow at noon I'll be finished.

    I'm 99% sure I'll be able to match that up.

    The problem so far is that the marks I was trying to look up weren't old enough.

    About one inch of this book is hallmarks,..... like this,.....

    English, Scottish, Irish, makers marks
    German makers marks
    French makers marks
    European makers marks.
    Etc.

    Page after page after page

    Any idea where that piece hails from?

    We researched British hallmarks and it was missing other identifiers according to who done the research.. I personally think American but Iím no expert!

    🤦 Is my post above with a provided link not viewable? Itís not British, Scottish or Irish. If it were, there would be other hallmarks to go with it. Itís an early American piece. Amos Munson from New Haven Ct. stylistically it also matches that time period.

    Link is fine & it looks like Amos Munson is a strong possibility.

    I checked all the American hallmarks, as luck would have it Amos Munson shows a blank.

    I checked all the "A's" and all the "M's", no luck here.

    Yeah I saw that too in one of my books. My go-to website has three examples of his mark. That tells me he had multiple punches and they are all different. I donít think he was a prominent silversmith and I donít see a lot of his work out there online. I do find it odd that he marked the top of the spoon rather than the back. It could have been a practice piece but who really knows at this point. Part of the mystery and history! I collect this stuff and have for several years now. Without seeing it in front of me, Iíd still say that itís a period piece worthy of any collection of early coin silver.

    I was drawn to them, they were part of a display of jadeite and silverplate shell spoons-picked them up and clanked them against the jadeite to see if there was a sound difference vs the plated stuff and there was so I bought the pair of them for not much investment.
