    This is another coin silver spoon I found. I am unsure about the year again. It is nice with the hallmark:


    Mongrammed PW in cursive.

      Thank you vetraio50. Would you say that the DOB is leaning toward the beginning of the 1816-1826 time period?
    3. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      The style of monogram may give it away to an expert in US silver. Mind you a ten year period is not bad given that no date letters were used!

      Yes, I agree. I didn't realize it was only ten years... sorry. lol. Thanks and have a good night!
