SOLD

Offered is a good American coin silver teaspoon (measuring about 5 1/4 inches in length and weighing about 10 grams), with a period engraved script monogram and a maker's mark of YOUNG in italicized Roman caps. I don't believe this mark has been definitively assigned to any of the various silversmiths named Young who were working in the United States around 1820-40, but this spoon appears to be from a small-town or rural origin, rather than a large city. Many of the Youngs in that period worked in the South, so this could be Southern coin silver, but I can't verify the maker at this point. Condition is good overall, with a very slight bend to the end of the handle, and minor bumps to the bowl, as well as modest tip wear; there are no splits or repairs. All in all a good example of this maker's mark!
