Re: California state capitol souvenir spoon with odd markings.

Welcome to the forum. It may be that these spoons are a product of Williams Bros Mfg of Glastonbury, Connecticut, and they were a higher standard of silverplate than A1. Just a thought. Hopefully, others will have a better idea.

Re: SCS Co Makers mark

Silvercraft Specialty Co Inc New York, NY "S. C. S. Co." dealt in sterling silver goods in 1925. In 1928 the Silvercraft Specialty Company took a space in the building at 307 Fifth Avenue. That's all I have for now, but hopefully, it's a start.

Re: Hallmark ID Help of a Letter Opener with Magnifying Glass

The information was gleaned from google images and eBay. But it looks like for now there's no good explanation for your number being 615 and other examples being 614.

Re: Hallmark ID Help of a Letter Opener with Magnifying Glass

How long this item. 614 apparently goes with the 9" model. May 615 is a different length? Just a thought.

Thanks! I'm kind of hung up on the Forsythia Intermedia or a variation, but I'll take a closer look at lillies. The meaning behind them is a perfect fit.

Re: Unknown Blossoms On Brooch

Thanks Traintime. I like the layout of the site. For now I'm going to say the name of the blossom is forsythia intermedia (Golden Bells/Golden Nugget).
