Offered is a nice set of Southern coin silver teaspoons by John A. McCaulley, working in Richmond, Kentucky in the mid 1860s, followed by a stint in the 1870s mostly in Bloomington, IL, and then back to Kentucky (Lexington) in the latter half of the 1870s. These spoons were made by Watts of Philadelphia and bear legible retailer's marks for McCaulley. His mark seems to be quite uncommon in Kentucky silver. These spoons each have a period engraved script monogram. The spoons measure about six inches in length, on average, and weigh a total of about 80 grams. Please see all of the pictures. Condition is fair overall, with one spoon having a repair to the bowl (see pics), and a couple others having bumps or bends; there appear to be no splits. All in all a nice example of this rare mark!
