Offered is a nice Southern coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of James T. Scott & Co., working in Wheeling, Virginia and later West Virginia circa the mid 1850s through the late 1860s. Mr. Scott and his partners seem to have mostly retailed silver, though this bears only his maker's or retailer's mark, and no manufacturer's marks. In my other listings on the site, I have several other spoons, with different monograms but also found around Wheeling, with James T. Scott & Co.'s mark. This spoon may relate to another, engraved "EH" rather than "MH" but possibly from the same family. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 16 grams. This teaspoon is in very good condition with only modest wear, a few tiny dings to the bowl but no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a fine example of a Wheeling coin silver spoon!
