Offered is a nice American coin silver table spoon measuring about 9 1/8 inches in length and weighing about 52 grams. This piece bears the mark of Newell Harding of (during this period of 1820-30) Haverhill, MA, but Harding doesn't appear to be the maker, as his mark is overstriking that of another silversmith. It is not surprising that this would be the case, as this piece is frankly superior to much of Harding's work...

Offered is a nice decorative American coin silver handled cup, probably a gift to a child upon christening or other special occasion.

It measures about 3 1/4 inches high to the top of the handle, and weighs about 68 grams. Condition is good overall, aside from the foot, which is dented and out of round. Surprisingly, there is no push of the foot into the interior of the body...

Offered is a nice little American coin silver teaspoon by well-known Reading silversmith William Mannerback, circa 1825.

Offered is a lovely pair of Southern coin silver teaspoons by Kentucky silversmith E.C. Beard, working in Louisville alone and in partnership circa 1820-60. These spoons by style could date anywhere from 1830 to the 1850s, but are most likely from the 1830s or 1840s. Each is marked BEARD in a distinctive serrated punch with a funny curve to the left side. Each spoon also has a period engraved script monogram of "SW". Please take a look at all pictures...

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver teaspoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Henry Erwin, circa 1816-34. Although spoons by Erwin are not uncommon and I have handled many, the pseudo-hallmark on these spoons to the right of the maker's mark are unique in my experience. What exactly they represent visually is a mystery - it looks to me like a hunting dog looking back over its shoulder when oriented so that the bottom is toward the name mark...

Offered is a an interesting American coin silver teaspoon by the little-known maker R. Carroll, about whom little seems to have been documented. This is interesting in that his working place is demonstrated by the marks on this piece. In addition to the maker's mark of R.CARROLL, there is a mark of YOUNGSTOWN.O for Youngstown, Ohio. This piece measures about 5 15/16 inches in length, and weighs about 19 grams. Condition is good overall, with a few tiny dimples to the bowl and one or two stub...

Offered is a very good American coin silver teaspoon by Wilmington silversmith James Guthre (1796-1877), who was working by about 1820 and continued to work for a fairly long period of time. Guthre was fairly prolific and this piece is a good example of his work. It bears a clear strike of his maker's mark and a well-executed period engraved script monogram. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs about 20 grams. Condition overall is good, with a very minor, shallow dimple or two...

Offered is a very scarce example of a Sheaf-of-Wheat pattern coin silver spoon from the Midwest - in this case from the Ashtabula, Ohio area. The maker is A.G. Peck, about whom little is known; he is believed to have worked in the Ashtabula area in the 1820s. This piece has an engraved period script monogram and a rubbed but legible maker's mark. Please click through the pictures to see everything. The die-struck sheaf-of-wheat decoration is in good shape. This piece measures about 6 1/16 i...

Offered is a very good and heavy American coin silver teaspoon with die-struck sheaf-of-wheat decoration to the handle, surmounting a period engraved script monogram. This piece is struck with the maker's mark of G.MECUM in a serrated punch, for George Mecum, working in Boston circa 1825-46. This piece probably dates to the 1820s. It measures about 6 1/16 inches in length and weighs a very heavy 23 grams or so. Condition is very good overall, with a tiny and very shallow ding in the bowl and...

Offered is a lovely Baltimore coin silver teaspoon by noted silversmith and watch and clock maker, John Lynch (1761-1848), probably circa the 1830s, but perhaps a little earlier or later. This piece has an engraved period script monogram and also features, in addition to a maker's mark for Mr. Lynch, several pseudo-hallmarks, including a union shield, an eagle, and the letter "S". These hallmarks probably post-date the Assay period in Baltimore history, and I've only observed them on a handful...

Offered is an excellent pair of very large early American coin silver tablespoons by the well-known partnership of Albany silversmiths Robert Shepherd and William Boyd, working circa 1806-30. This partnership's work seems to have been at its most prolific before 1820, and its work is typically quite fine indeed. These tablespoons each bear the firm's maker's mark, and each is engraved with a large, well-executed period script monogram of "AH". The maker's mark is legible on each tablespoon....
