Hi Robert,

Welcome to the Forum.

Can you post images of the whole spoon, back and front?

The mark on the left appears to be a date letter used at Edinburgh in 1761. Is there any evidence of other worn marks?

The style of the spoon would fit in for 1761.

Is there any evidence of other worn marks?

It doesn't look like an Edinburgh date letter to me (wrong punch shape for one thing) - not sure what it is though. It does look as if there may be further marks along the stem. Perhaps a light cleaning would reveal them better (if indeed they really are marks and not simply blemishes).
