    Old Silver / pewter spoon found need help identifying it

    Hey guys, I found this old spoon while out today metal detecting. Itís hard to date but the area was occupied from the late 1600s up until now. There was a revolutionary war near this area. Iím hoping somebody can help identify the markings and possibly date the spoon. The spoon is non-magnetic and just dirty.Click image for larger version.

    Can we see the back? Are there any markings on the back? If there are, can we have a pic of them? Looks like it was a silver plated copper or iron spoon. Maybe pewter?

    Some kind of copper-alloy base which was once silvered I think. Strange design!

    From the design style of the handle , I'm confident in a late 19th /early 20th C. dating of the piece (1890's -1910)

    Welcome to Tnet

    Your spoon appears to be in a pattern known as ‘Persian’, designed by Charles D. Hall in 1871.

    Wow, thank you very much. I was having a very difficult time figuring it out. I just saw it laying there on the side of the river bed.
