NOT FOR SALE

For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite possibly from New England. Please take a look at all five photos.

Perhaps I've missed a trick, but I haven't solved this one, so I need some help! If you can provide a solid attribution for this piece, I will send you a lovely coin silver spoon (probably from Philadelphia), in excellent condition, as a prize. Thanks!
