Offered is a good and scarce Southern coin silver teaspoon with the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Charles Frederick Greenwood, living in Edenton, North Carolina in 1846 and then opening a small silversmith and jeweler's shop in Norfolk, VA in 1847. This spoon bears the earlier of his two marks, and he seems to have adopted sterling fairly early, so it would most likely date to the 1847-65 period, probably on the earlier end. This spoon is engraved with a period script monogram of 'FP' and has a good legible mark. This piece measures about 5 3/4 inches in length and weighs a good 18 grams. Condition is very good, with a minor dimple in the bowl and a tiny ding to the edge of the handle, but only modest wear from normal use, and no splits or repairs. All in all a nice piece of Norfolk, Virginia coin silver!
