Offered is an interesting American coin silver teaspoon circa 1848, in a pattern I haven't seen before, and which seems to be quite rare. This pattern was apparently patented in 1848, judging by the mark on the spoon, and the spoon was retailed by John and James Cox of New York, NY. The manufacturer may or may not have used a "W" mark, which has a journeyman's mark or tally mark next to it. Alternatively, the "W" is itself a journeyman's mark, and the spoon could lack any identification of the manufacturer beyond the patent mark. This piece is engraved "ED" in period script to the front, and "Dodge" in period script to the back. It measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 25 grams. Condition is good overall, with some modest surface wear and one ding to the side of the bowl (see picture) that is very minor and could easily be taken out. There are no splits or repairs. All in all a nice example of a very scarce coin silver pattern!
