6 Coin Silver Teaspoons, Detroit, Michigan, Leavenworth
6 American Coin Silver Teaspoons, 5 and 3/4 inches long, by T. B. Leavenworth, Detroit, Michigan. Rainwater and Redfield put him in Detroit in 1869, but these spoons are of a type commonly made from 1850-60 and McGrew agrees they are in that style. Perhaps old stock from New York was unloaded in the West later or perhaps they were made earlier than 1869. Marked with the Detroit Eight-Point Star, T B LEAVENWORTH and COIN incuse. Engraved "M Stanley" in cursive script on the front of the handle. 1 bowl in good condition, 3 fair and 2 fair to poor due to excessive denting. Fiddle tipt pattern. The color is silver, the photos just are poor in color.
