Offered is a rare and lovely early American coin silver spoon by Nazareth, Pennsylvania silversmith Josiah O. Beitel, who was born and died in Nazareth (b. 1811, d. 1898, and worked there all his life. Mr. Beitel apprenticed under Jedediah Weiss in 1825, and this spoon probably dates to shortly after that. It has a good clear maker's mark and a lovely period engraved script "ECD". This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair at best, some dings to the bowl and to the handle, but with no splits or repairs. All in all a fine example of a Nazareth coin silver spoon!
