    Sure appear to be silver, but no markings other than the O on the reverse stem. It has that nice bright silver patina all over it. Usually, with small scratches, you can identify plated, but there are none.

    Any idea as to the maker or the age of this spoon? What type of spoon is it? It measures about five inches long. Could it be a baby's spoon? Any help would be appreciated. Charles

      Hello,
      I also am looking for information about this same small 5" spoon with only marking of "O" on the back.
      Thank you

      Copper-nickel is used in coins, and many people mistake the alloy for silver.
      Possibly copper-nickel, which in silverware is often called nickel-silver?
