I cant help with marks but that is called a fiddle pattern. Likey 1800s.

Thanks for the info. the site is likely between 1750-1800s so that makes sense. Hoping to find out about the marks some day.

Agree with taz420, I dig colonial sites & that type spoon never shows up on them.So 1800's onward..............I'll give you all the spoon sites I have & they all say the same.................Fiddle back early 1800's & up.............

Ben from NH, the Z means nothing
I believe that it would have originally been silver plated with the "Old Sheffield" plating common in the timeframe mentioned. It didn't weather terribly well even inside, and thus has all come off.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain
