    Silver Spoon Or Fork Handle ....yes & Rand

    This silver spoon or fork handle was found at the site of an antebellum house that was still inhabited in the 1960s. It is extremely thin (.6 mm) and has a partial company name. The first name is cut off but ends in "yes". What I can read says "yes & Rand". Can anyone identify this company and provide dates of manufacture based on the partial name on the handle? Thanks.

    Used to be a guy on this forum that had a fair amout of info on old American silver. I had a really old early 19th century looking, spoon he couldn't I.d... Seem this country early on had many silver smith's working as a cottage industry with very little to no info on them. It's most likely old coin silver I'm thinking?. Either a spoon or a fork.?

    Thanks Tamrock. My search found a couple of possibilities with Rand but nothing that matches a name ending with yes. I thought Hayes would be a good candidate, but no luck there. Hopefully a silver expert can identify. Thanks for your response.
