If not a full repair, then perhaps a partial repair on the rat-tail part, someone more knowledgable than myself detected a repair in these salt spoons:
There were others as well, but I did not take pics as they were sold to a private collector the same day I bought them, only the spoons with hallmarks I was unsure of made it here to get an opinion as to the makers' marks___
In the Early Colonial American Silversmiths book I have, it lists a "heart-shaped" hallmark by both Phillip Syng Sr. AND Phillip Syng Jr. ___
The "heart-shaped" hallmark by Phillip Syng Jr seems to have a more "pointed" base, so I think your "more rounded" heart-base is more consistent with Phillip Syng Sr., in my opinion at least, but I am looking for more examples by both father and son Syng in order to help figure it all out ___
It's a great find, of this we can be absolutely certain!
