Offered is an unusual early American coin silver teaspoon circa 1820 bearing a crude mark of "PEABODY." in a rectangular punch. The maker's mark is slightly rubbed but still legible. This mark is attributed by William Voss (see the American Silversmiths website by googling "silversmiths" and "genealogy") to Nathaniel Prentice Peabody (1806-1883), working in Bennettsville, Marlboro, SC circa 1830-70. However, I think it possible due to the style of this piece that this is the work and mark of... Click for details
