Offered is a nice Southern coin silver dessert spoon by noted Norfolk, Virginia silversmith Joseph M. Freeman, with period engraving of "Dr. Willson" over "USN". This piece probably dates to the 1830s or 1840s, and Dr. Willson was presumably a Navy surgeon attached to the Atlantic Fleet at Norfolk at that time. Given the Navy's extensive records and the availability of resources at Norfolk and at the Navy Museum in Washington, it is quite likely Dr. Willson could be tracked down and pinpointed...

Offered is a nice set of Southern coin silver teaspoons by John A. McCaulley, working in Richmond, Kentucky in the mid 1860s, followed by a stint in the 1870s mostly in Bloomington, IL, and then back to Kentucky (Lexington) in the latter half of the 1870s. These spoons were made by Watts of Philadelphia and bear legible retailer's marks for McCaulley. His mark seems to be quite uncommon in Kentucky silver. These spoons each have a period engraved script monogram...

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.

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 pair of Southern coin silver spoons 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.'...

Offered is a fine early fiddle pattern American coin silver teaspoon bearing the maker's mark B.LORD, for Benjamin Lord, a silversmith who began his career in Rutland, Vermont and moved to Athens, Georgia by 1831. Benjamin died in Athens in 1843. His two sons, Benjamin Buel Lord and Ebenezer Lord, also worked in Athens, and in theory his son Benjamin B. Lord could have marked this spoon. By style, this spoon could date from the 1820s or 1830s, so it is unknown whether or not it was made in Ge...
