I haven't posted a good coin silver spoon in some time so I decided to post this one real quick. I love this spoon very much for several reasons. I like the traditional coffin end and the bright cut design surrounding the initials - TH. These are my father's initials, so it is a little extra special. The spoon is in great condition and it is a tank of a spoon. It has an extra thick tapering handle which makes up for the lack of width. The overlapping rat tail and the tear drop on the reverse add a nice touch. The hallmark is also in perfect shape. CC

I would not be sure how to narrow down the year, but I would say it is toward the later end. The spoon is a massive 9 inches and weighs 1.6 oz or 44 grams. A really well made spoon with a sleek design. I love it.
