Offered is a very rare example of early Texas coin silver - a master butter knife bearing the marks A.BAHN&Co. and COIN, for Adolph Bahn & Co., working in Galveston and then in Austin (see below for biographical information). This piece is engraved "Chaffee" in period script, and perhaps could be traced to the original family given the populations of Galveston and Austin at the time. The maker's mark is a little rubbed but still legible...

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 good and scarce Southern coin silver teaspoon with the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Charles Frederick Greenwood, living in Edenton, North Carolina in 1846 and then opening a small silversmith and jeweler's shop in Norfolk, VA in 1847. This spoon bears the earlier of his two marks, and he seems to have adopted sterling fairly early, so it would most likely date to the 1847-65 period, probably on the earlier end.

Offered is a good pair of Southern coin silver teaspoons by Virginia silversmith Jehu Williams, Sr., working first in Fredericksburg and then for the majority of his career in Lynchburg.

Williams then worked alone from 1845 to 1856 and with his son from 1856 to Jehu Sr.'s death in 1859. The mark on these spoons is attributed by Hollan to ...

Offered is an unusual early American coin silver teaspoon circa 1820 bearing a crude mark of "PEABODY." in a rectangular punch. The maker's mark is slightly rubbed but still legible. This mark is attributed by William Voss (see the American Silversmiths website by googling "silversmiths" and "genealogy") to Nathaniel Prentice Peabody (1806-1883), working in Bennettsville, Marlboro, SC circa 1830-70. However, I think it possible due to the style of this piece that this is the work and mark of ...

Offered is a nice Southern coin silver teaspoon bearing the mark of James T. Scott & Co., working in Wheeling, Virginia and later West Virginia circa the mid 1850s through the late 1860s.

In my other listings on the site, I have several other spoons, with different monograms but also found around Wheeling, with James T. Scott & Co.'s mark. This sp...
