Help With Spoon Maker Please

These two spoons are about 14.5 cm long. The mark looks like it could be M D or M P or maybe something else. Any help would be very much appreciated. I will try to get a better shot of the makers mark if needed.

Re: Did Shepard Mfg Co purchase rights to some of Julius Walk's desings for BINGHAM & WALK?

The term of the patent you refer to was 3.5 years; so unless it was renewed, patent protection was not in place for long.

Re: Teaspoon origin

I don't recognize the A. R. What does the inscription say; it might have something to do with identifying the origin of this spoon.

The die maker didn't try to use the typical Romanized Vietnamese letters, but it is clear what it says now. I apologize for my unnecessary interjection.

Re: Spoon Handle Stamped Backwards

I see what you are saying. Wondered if I was missing something obvious. I did come across one other non child's spoon that was reversed, but maybe there's an explanation for that too. Thank you!
