    Massive 19th Century Russian Imperial Silver Spoon!!

    Found at the dump today! A Russian imperial silver spoon and some small teaspoons (not sure if they're silver or not). The Russian spoon is marked "1886" and "84". It is a massive 78.8 gram silver spoon. Made during the reign of Czar Alexander III. Never found imperial Russian silver before! And this is one of the oldest treasures in my collection now. If anyone knows anything more abut it please tell me. Thanks!

    That is so freakin' cool, nice dig!! I see it has lots of hallmarks, like British silver pieces... I'm guessing each means something, yeah?

    Your Spoon is actually Polish.

    It was assayed to 84% purity in Warsaw Poland in 1886 by Josef Sosnkowski.

    wow, that's like 40 mercury dimes worth of silver all wrapped up in one find!

    not exact science, more like sarcastic guessing of course out of pure jealousy

    CONGRATS!!
