Offered is a good pair of American coin silver (many would consider this Southern coin silver) teaspoons bearing the retailer's mark of F. J. Posey. Frederick J. Posey (1815-1881) was active as a silversmith, jeweler, watch and clockmaker in Hagerstown, Maryland from at least 1842 until after 1860. He also reportedly worked as a watch and clockmaker in Shepherdstown, Virginia in 1842. This pair of teaspoons, made by James Watts in Philadelphia and retailed by Posey, are lightly engraved with a period script monogram and each has a legible set of marks. Each spoon measures about 6 inches in length, and each weighs about 17 grams. Condition on this pair of spoons is good, with modest wear but no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a nice pair of Hagerstown or southern coin silver spoons!
