Offered is a rare surviving American coin silver spoon bearing a mark of SPACKMAN, in the Philadelphia taste, probably for George Spackman, jeweler born CT in 1798, residing in Philadelphia circa 1820s into the 1850s. Spackman seems to have been a generalist and not too successful, and this is the only piece of coin silver I've seen bearing what appears to be his mark. The mark on this spoon, even though rubbed, was used for "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Hollan, as no other examples have been...

Offered is a good Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon by rare silversmith George Washington Reed, a younger son of Isaac Reed. The mark on this spoon, rubbed as it is, was still used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan, due to its rarity. This is the only example I've come across of this mark. G. W. Reed worked in Philadelphia circa 1839-61. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some dimples to the ...

This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 14 gr...

Offered is a nice Philadelphia coin silver teaspoon by silversmith William Baily, Jr., bearing a specimen example of his early mark, with the Jr. being used while his father (also a silversmith) was still alive. This piece probably dates prior to 1835. This piece measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. Condition is fair, with some dimpling to the bowl and some ripples in the handle, but no splits or repairs. All in all a fine piece of Philadelphia silver!

Offered is a nice American coin silver table knife, probably a butter knife, by well-known Woodstock, Vermont silversmith Roswell Hopkins Bailey, working circa 1837-80. Please click on the picture to see all the available pictures. Mr. Bailey had a long and successful career, and a fair amount of silver bearing his mark has survived, though this is the first MOP-handled knife I've seen with his maker's mark, and indeed the first from Vermont. This piece probably dates to about 1840. It measu...

Offered is a nice little early American coin silver coffee spoon or extra small teaspoon by well-known Newburyport, MA silversmith Joseph Moulton III. Although this spoon bears the mark of Joseph Moulton II, he appears to have been working only until around 1780, and his nephew Joseph Moulton III is believed to have used this mark on a number of items. This spoon should date to the 1795-1805 timeframe, give or take a few years on either side. It has a an engraved reserve and period block engr...

Offered is a an exceedingly rare example of very early (possibly pre-War of 1812) Erie, PA coin silver. Please click on the picture to see all the other pictures of this piece. This spoon should date to about 1805-15 by style, and is marked S. Ball in script and ERIE in a separate punch in capitals. A partnership of G. & S. Ball, clock and watch-makers and silversmiths, was taxed in Erie in 1808. I haven't found much more about either G. or S. Ball, but strongly suspect they were Gary Ball (...

Please click on the picture to see all the pictures of this piece and its marks. Silver bearing the mark of this partnership often has the same elephant pseudo-hallmark, and it appears Bailey & Co. supplied the partnership ...
