Good Maryland Coin Silver Spoon Marked Jacob with STER and Harp Marks

Offered is a very good coin silver teaspoon marked Jacob in a conforming punch, with a sterling mark of STER and a harp mark. These marks are very much like Irish provincial marks, but this teaspoon is definitely an American piece, probably from the Baltimore area. In 2014 I sold a tablespoon with the same maker's mark, but with a Union Shield pseudo-hallmark and another mark of the letter S. Perhaps this all points to a silversmith lately arrived from Ireland, who eventually traded his Irish... Click for details
