click for more pictures for item
This is an early Philadelphia pattern coin silver tea or youth knife, marked Hildeburn & Bros. but likely made by James Watts. The knife is 7 5/8 inches long and weighs a hefty 52 grams. The handle is double die-struck in a simple waisted pattern as shown. The knife has a worn monogram on one side of the handle. The knife is marked "HILDEBURN & BROS" on the blade and "PA____", likely a partial patent date, on the handle.
Condition on the knife is fairly good. The monogram area is very worn, and there are a few stubborn areas of tarnish. Regardless, a handsome old coin silver knife!
