Offered is a very rare pair of Missouri coin silver spoons from Hannibal jeweler George Mitchell, whose biographical information appears below. These spoons are well marked with a mark of COIN, a mark of G.MITCHELL, and a mark of HANIBAL (the town's name was spelled "Hannibal" even during Mitchell's time there, so this mark was cut incorrectly by the die maker). Missouri silver sometimes includes a town mark, but Hannibal (hometown of Mark Twain) seems to be more rare than most as a mark. The...

Offered is a nice example of the maker's mark or retailer's mark used by George W. Stewart of Lexington, KY, working there circa 1843-52. This piece is not in great condition, with a worn and dented bowl that also has a small split, but the mark is clear and well struck, and includes a city and state reference. This spoon also has a period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 5 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams. All in all a nice old Southern coin silver spoon!

Offered is a very scarce and early example of Kentucky coin silver by prominent Lexington silversmith Samuel Ayres, whose biographical information appears below. This piece is marked with a maker's mark of "S.AYRES LEX K" in a banner. By style this piece would appear to date to between 1800 and 1810. There is no monogram or sign of erasure, and the maker's mark is rubbed but legible. This piece measures about 4 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 7 grams. Condition is poor overall, with s...

Offered is a lovely example of the work of Pennsylvania silversmith John D. Haverstick, a member of the celebrated Haverstick family of silversmiths. John D. Haverstick was working in Lancaster circa 1805-09; in Carlisle circa 1809-25; and in Erie after 1825. This probably dates to the Carlisle period, but could be a late Lancaster piece. It is a finless fiddle pattern teaspoon with a a well-struck and clear maker's mark and a period engraved script monogram of "SA", done in a distinctive sty...

Offered is a nice pair of New York coin silver teaspoons circa 1825-40 by J.BELL with pseudo-hallmarks; this mark has sometimes been given to John Bell of New York City, but he seems to have worked too early for the style of these spoons unless they were in the last year or two of his career. There were also at least two J. Bells working in Ogdensburg, NY between 1810 and 1850 or 60, and this could be the mark of one of those men. In any event, these are two nicely marked spoons with a good pe...

Offered is a very nice early American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith and jeweler Nicholas Le Huray (or LeHuray) Jr., working circa 1821-46 in that city. Nicholas Junior's work is always desirable and usually very finely done. This spoon is no exception, with a lively period engraved script monogram, and nice proportions. Please scroll through all the pictures by clicking on the first picture. This spoon measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams. ...

Offered is a nice American coin silver salt spoon by well-known Lancaster watchmaker and silversmith Gottfried M. Zahm, part of a family dynasty of silversmiths and jewelers in Lancaster. This piece is marked G.M.ZAHM in a rectangular punch, and is engraved "CR" in period script for the original owner. Interestingly, the engraver slipped a bit and there is a line from the end of the R down the handle. This piece measures about 3 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 6 grams. Condition overal...

Not For Sale
NOT FOR SALE - Here's a challenge - a circa 1790-1810 American coin silver tablespoon marked only IS in a large serrated punch, with a nicely engraved period script monogram of GJM and a V-shaped drop. This piece measures about 9 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 59 grams. It came in a lot with a piece by Caleb Bentley of DC, VA and MD, and it has the look of rural VA, MD or PA. I haven't seen this particular mark before, and am hoping someone else has. If you can solve this piece (or gi...

Offered is a very nice American coin silver table spoon by Prisca Levan Mannerback (Mannerbach), son of the well-known Reading silversmith William Mannerback. The younger Mannerbach/Mannerback, who went by Levan based on his maker's mark, started working under his own mark not much earlier than 1825, given that he was born in 1807, and that would make him 18 in 1825. This piece probably dates to the 1825-40 period. You can see all the pictures by clicking on the first picture. This piece has...

Offered is a very fine example of the early maker's mark of noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward P. Lescure, who was working between 1822 and about 1836, and then intermittently through about 1861. While Lescure's later mark is well-known and seen periodically, this early mark is all but unknown, and perhaps only a tiny fraction of Lescure's extant work bears this mark. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. It has a faded period engraved script monogram....

Offered is a very fine American coin silver teaspoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Edward P. Lescure, working circa 1822-36 and then intermittently through 1861.

This spoon also has an engraved period script monogram. This piece measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 22 grams. Condition is...

Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon bearing early marks for Thomas J. Megear, silversmith of Wilmington (1831-32) and then Philadelphia (1832 to about 1860). This spoon is of the right style to have been made in the 1830s, and so could be from either location. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 17 grams. It has a good clear maker's mark and a slightly faded period engraved script monogram. Condition overall is fair, with moderate wear overall, but n...

Offered is a new mark that may be the retailers' mark of a partnership between Malcom MacNeil (McNeil) of Philadelphia and his son John A. MacNeil (McNeil). I've never come across this mark before, but the spoon was manufactured by Watts of Philadelphia and is of the right time period for this father and son to have formed a partnership. The marks are nicely struck, and this spoon also has an excellently engraved period script monogram. This spoon measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and wei...

Offered is a scarce example of the mark of Washington, DC watchmaker and jeweler Jacob Karr, working in that city between 1857 and 1905; he died in 1917 at the age of 81, and was born in Germany, coming to the U.S. at the age of 11. For at least part of his tenure he was located at 348 Pennsylvania Avenue.
