Offered is a good example of early Midwestern coin silver, a teaspoon marked and perhaps made by clock and watch maker, jeweler, silversmith and dentist John H. Potts, working in Fayette, Missouri in the 1840s, and possibly in Lyons, Iowa by the 1850s. Potts was a working jeweler at least into the late 1860s, though I haven't fully researched him.

Wilkinson's "Indian Colonial Silver" - published in 1973 in an edition of only 1000, this continues to be the standard reference for the field.

Offered is a scarce example of the work of little-known silversmith Lucas Ryerson (1771 - 1855). Ryerson was born and died in New Jersey, but his exact working dates and locations are something of a mystery. He is often described as having spent the majority of his working life in York, PA, moving back to New Jersey only around 1840 to continue working as a silversmith and clockmaker...

Offered is a fine and rare example of a period George III "Onslow" or "Scroll" pattern stuffing or platter spoon, sometimes also called a gravy spoon. This pattern is highly sought after, to the point that there are many later alterations out there. However, those spoons are not generally joined in the same way the period Onslow serving pieces were; a period spoon should have a scarf joint joining the cast scroll end to the stem, as this spoon does (see pictures)...

Offered is a good and scarce American coin silver table spoon from Hagerstown, Maryland. Some consider silver from Maryland towns like Hagerstown to be Southern coin silver due to the sympathies of many of the inhabitants. This piece is marked with the maker's mark of Thomas Alexander Boullt (1818-1876), a well-known Hagerstown silversmith, jeweler, watchmaker and clockmaker. In the latter part of his long (1846-70s) career, Boullt was advertising as an jeweler and optician, at No. 16 West Washi...
