    Silverplate spoon I.D.

    I found this spoon at the same site I found some old buttons. I've looked a bit online for matching hallmarks or patterns but I can't seem to find them. Anyone know anything about this maker? Age? This spoon is just short of 4" long. You should be able to see the hallmarks decently but if not, there are 5 of them. The upper is NS inside a shield shaped inset. The second one down is a circle with an unknown symbol inside. The 3rd is an oval inset with a 3 overlapping a backwards 3, back to back. The fourth symbol is an arrow pointing down, and the last appears to be HP. Thanks for your help.

    I think this spoon is from the 1820s-1840s judging by its style. Here are 1830s spoons, notice the similaritys to your spoon. Spoons after the 1840s have a very different style then yours.

    Here is a great site I use to identify silver and silver plate marks

    Thanks coinman123. Mine sure has the same type of shape but mine is a plated spoon with no decoration to speak of. I guess that could have come off when the plating did but I would think there would be some evidence of pattern.

    Thanks Frankg, I've gone through that site many times and can't find any of my hallmarks on there.
