    Spoon Theme - dug Colonial silver spoons with initials and maker's marks

    There have been a number of colonial silver spoons with initials and maker's marks posted recently on the Today's Finds forum. Lets see others that are not necessarily "Today's Finds" but fit the theme. I will start with these two. The partial one was dug in West Virginia and the complete one in Pennsylvania. I have not been able to identify the maker's marks.

    I guess it depends what you will let go under Colonial... but I'm guessing close counts. Ironhorse actually dug one yesterday.

    Here's the only one I've found.

    That's exactly what I'm looking for. I'm sure it's pretty hard to tell a 1775 spoon from an 1825 spoon in a lot of cases unless you can date the silversmith, so yes, close counts!

    Re: Spoon Theme - dug Colonial silver spoons with initials and maker's marks

    Not colonial, more likely early to mid 1800's, I found this one in Cape Cod last summer. I have not been able to ID the hallmark yet.

    I also found this "coin silver" spoon a few years back .....inches from a 1970's archeological dig The hallmark is from Philadelphia Silversmith James Watts circa 1860. Watts mark was unknown for many years as it is a horsehead over a cheveron . It is unique to the silver trade, not confused with any other. Watts was a well known silversmith and his work is sought and collected. S&E Roberts were retailers from Trenton NJ during the mid to late 1800's.

    Steve, here is the only coin silver spoon I have dug. I tried to ID the maker --no luck.

    Keith, that fits perfectly with this theme. I love the old looking initials on that spoon Again, I think that the second letter in the makers mark may be a J instead of an I.
