Dating from very early in the history of the company founded in 1853, this 6 5/8" long, just over .8 T. oz., preserve spoon is stamped "Wm. B. Durgin" and "Pure Coin."

Apparently it was a line pattern given that a variety of pieces still show up, but is unnamed. It has a flat handle with a chiseled looking margin and an extensively bright cut and engraving surface. The backside is plain, save for the marks. The bowl is a shell form with scalloped edges.

It is in exceptionally fine condition. The engraving remains crisp and well-defined. There are no breaks, bends, burrs, or repairs to the handle or bowl, and the finish is nicely patinated.
