Offered is a nicely decorated late 18th Century American coin silver teaspoon by little-known Philadelphia, PA and Lansingburgh, NY silversmith David Smith, working in Philadelphia circa 1778-87, and in Lansingburgh from about 1787-93. This piece is engraved with a period monogram within a nicely done reserve, in the New York style. As such, the spoon likely dates from Mr. Smith's Lansingburgh years. The maker's mark is rubbed but legible...

Offered is an interesting and odd American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon, measuring about 4 7/8 inches in length and weighing about 12 grams, marked CLARK in crude roman caps. I can't tell whether this is a legitimate mark, or a spurious mark meant to emulate one for Joseph Clark, Jr. - the placement of the letters are quite close to his known full name mark, and the die looks consistent with one that was worn and cut down. However, the piece has some question marks...

Offered is an interesting early silver spoon that I strongly suspect is coin silver; it was part of an assembled collection out of Massachusetts. This piece appears to be marked "BS" or perhaps "RS", but then it is subject to interpretation. There is the remnant of another mark, but it isn't a lion passant as the orientation of the lion would be all wrong. This piece appears to date to about 1760-80. It measures about 4 1/16 inches in length, and weighs about 7 grams...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon, circa 1795-1805, by noted Philadelphia silversmith John McMullin (b. 1765 - d. 1843), measuring about 6 inches in length and weighing about 19 grams. This piece is engraved with a well-executed period script monogram that appears to be "SM". This spoon is marked to the reverse with one of McMullin's earlier maker's marks...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver birdback teaspoon by noted Philadelphia maker John Myers (fl. 1785-1804), with a fairly worn but legible bird. This piece is engraved with period script initials of "PS" and has a maker's mark of I.MYERS to the reverse. This piece measures about six inches in length and weighs about 12 grams. Condition is fair, with some wear and dings to the bowl, and a very slight waviness to the stem. Please take a look at all the pictures...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver teaspoon from the late 18th Century, bearing period engraved block initials but without a maker's mark. Although this piece could be from anywhere in theory, it has certain proportions that might support a guess of a New Hampshire origin. Hard to explain - more of a "feel" thing. This piece measures about 5 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs...

Offered is a nice early American coin silver birdback spoon by noted Philadelphia silversmith Abraham Dubois (born ca. 1751, died 1807), who flourished both in this profession and as a trader in goods, primarily in the West Indies. Dubois made some very fine silver, including outstanding coffee pots and sugar urns. This teaspoon dates to about 1785 by style, give or take five years, and is marked with Dubois' full name maker's mark...

Offered is a lovely and very early American coin silver table spoon by New York silversmith Peter Vergereau. According to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:

"Peter Vergereau is probably the individual born into New York City’s French community and baptised at the Église Françoise à la Nouvelle York on August 21, 1700. He was granted freeman status in 1721, which would have been the logical time for him to begin practicing his craft after an average apprenticeship...

Offered is an excellent early American coin silver dessert spoon by noted Lancaster, PA silversmith William Haverstick, Sr. (1756-1823), circa 1790-1800. Although many teaspoons by William Haverstick Sr. and Jr. (who used the same mark) have been observed, and a fair number of tablespoons, dessert spoons are much more rare. This particular piece measures about 7 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 35 grams. It is graced with a very well executed period script engraved monogram of "AC" and h...

Offered is a superb set of three early American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr. In my view, there is no more elegant expression of American silver flatware of the late 18th Century than that shown by these spoons. The spoons each measure about 5 5/8 inches in length and the three weigh a total of about 50 grams. Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve. Condition is excell...

For your consideration is an interesting late 18th Century style American coin silver spoon, marked "W (pellet) D". It is my assumption at least that this piece, which measures about 4 15/16 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams, is American. It does not feel Canadian or British Colonial to me, nor does it come across as Continental. The light weight, unusual shell-back decoration, small bowl size, mark and engraving to the handle indicate to me that it is probably American and quite poss...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver spoon in the coffin-end pattern marked WILLARD, probably for a silversmith named A. Willard who may have worked in Utica. The spoon has a "Utica look" - however, I could be wrong. In any event, it is a lovely little piece. This spoon measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is very good overall, with no dents, splits or repairs. There is no monogram or obvious sign of erasure. All in all a fine example of this...

Offered is a lovely early American coin silver coffee spoon or teaspoon by noted New York silversmith Silas White (b. 1754 - d. 1798), circa 1775-85 by style, and probably on the earlier end of that range. This piece has one of White's maker's marks documented at Winterthur and elsewhere, and shares the distinctive drop with other spoons bearing his mark. This piece has a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved block initial monogram. This spoon measures about 4 3/8 inches in length and...

Offered is a very rare example of late 18th Century New York style decoration on a relatively tiny early American coin silver salt spoon, bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Thomas Burger. Mr. Burger and his father John Burger (working circa 1775-1807) were briefly in partnership circa 1805 and then Thomas Burger advertised alone circa 1806. After that he seems to disappear from directories, and I haven't found much information on him, despite his fame and that of his father. Presumably T...

Offered is a very early early (circa 1760-80) American coin silver tea or coffee spoon that appears to have a maker's mark of BB, for which there would be several candidates. This piece measures about 4 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. This spoon has some condition issues in that there is a fissure on the front stem from the stress of where the maker's mark was struck, and the spoon has been buffed. There are also some planishing marks visible on the end of the underside of the...

Offered is a challenge - identify the silversmith who made this spoon, with a verifiable attribution, and I will send you a surprise coin silver teaspoon in good condition as a prize! I haven't yet found this mark anywhere, and thought it an interesting experiment to leverage the talents of some of the silver enthusiasts and experts out there. This piece measures about 9 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. It is marked I*C in an irregular punch. The engraving and monogram are in ...

Offered is a nice serviceable but worn early American coin silver teaspoon by major Philadelphia and Quaker silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr., circa 1790. This spoon features die-struck birdback decoration, though it is about 80 percent worn off. The bowl also has wear and a few small dings. There are no splits or repairs. This spoon has a period engraved block monogram and the maker's mark for Richardson, Jr. is struck twice near the top of the stem. This is one of the earliest spoons I'v...
