Gethen and retailed by Allen Armstrong, who was working circa 1806-16. This piece features good clear marks and a period engraved script monogram. Condition is... Click for details

Offered is a rare example of early American coin silver bearing the mark of the short-lived Philadelphia partnership of silversmiths Liberty Browne and William Seal, working as Browne & Seal circa 1810-13.
