    Sorry to say, your piece is not Seaboard Coast line. First the date code on the Syracuse piece is “L-8” which would make it Aug. 1931. (The letter "A" date code started in 1920 and the letter "Z" was 1945, by the late 1960s the date codes were totaly different). The Seaboard Coast Line RR was formed in 1967 when the Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Air Line Railroads merged so the piece is much too early. Secondly both RR china books, Dining on Rails “the Bible of RR china” and The Official Guide to Railroad China do not list such a pattern to exist. For the most part the SCL used the ACL china patterns in their dining cars, although they did mark their silver pieces “SCL”.
