Re: California state capitol souvenir spoon with odd markings.

After looking into the meaning of A1 silver plate, I have to say that it is more likely that the crossed out marking has something to do with a less than A1 quality of silver plate. I doubt that the meaning is much more complicated than that, but will also wait to hear more.

AB Griswold & Co Gorham Fork Marks Question

Do these extra marks (T and something like an M) on this fork look familiar to anyone? Thank you in advance.
I'll do a better close up of the mark if needed.

Re: Tiffany Moore Sterling "Old Silver" hallmark?

The apparent duplicate marks are probably just chattered marks that occurred when the marking was originally done. Beautiful piece. The Old Silver mark is intriguing. There's a slim possibility that it has something to do with actual "old" silver vice silver from newly opened mines.

Welcome to the forum. Looks like an Edinburgh hallmark. Maybe someone else will recognize more. A larger and sharper image of the mark will help with identification.
