This one is out of my comfort zone of knowledge but any help would be great to know age and possibilties of where it comes from? I hope it’s the real deal!

Looks like it's worth a bump.

Matt can you rotate image three to the 12 o'clock 3, 6 positions to see if it sparks an idea from anyone?

Is this not an "Acorn Top" spoon? :: A quick search of the term "Acorn Top Spoon" will lead you to some examples in museums and these spoons seem to be mostly Dutch ::: What's strange is that it looks more like a pineapple than an acorn so I don't really know why, but the pineapple has been a symbol of welcome and hospitality since around 1700 because it was such a valuable fruit and I guess travelers really wanted to stay at places that would offer them pineapples so they would stay where the pineapple symbol was displayed :::::

Still trying to enhance and study the hallmark :
