Here is some unusual marking on a Swedish spoon.
A tablespoon, 8 1/2" (21.5cm) in length, with feather edged border.
MALMSTEDT - Gothenburg city mark - P2 date mark (1797) - Three Crowns State Mark.
The maker is unknown to me. Hopefully some can assist with this first question? But what about the marks below? They are struck on the front of the spoon. I suppose that they are not silver marks, but marks perhaps, that identify the owner, but the punch used is so detailed that surely these must be government marks.
