Last spoon was German, any idea on maker and time on this spoon?

The other spoon I posted turned out to be German, so I'm wondering if this one might be too? I was thinking it would date to the 1790s or so, but there is a date inscribed as 1844. It is really that new, or was the inscription done later? Any idea who the silversmith it? Thanks for any help! (I apol...

Any of makers on these two coin silver spoons?

First one has the initlals MP 1796 on the back. Wondering if it's American now with the other odd hallmark? Maker's mark DF with unknown hallmark. Can anyone help with maker's mark? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48762572036_9c847ecab2_z.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48762759567_980d7...

Need help dating these coin silver items...

There are no maker's marks on this piece at all, so I'm assuming American. It's some kind of pot and creamer? I'm guessing the stars are stamped/rolled on somehow? They're pretty thin, as I think combined they weigh about 10 ounces (maybe upwards of 12 or so). Does anyone recognize the style and the...

Final spoon! I believe circa 1800 Coin Silver Spoon... JPT silversmith

This is my final spoon. From my initial research, it looks to be from a J.P. Trott circa 1800. Can anyone verify that it was this silversmith, around 1800? Thank you for all of your help on this forum! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48539073056_f47ba7d2ba_z.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/655...

Need help with what looks like 1700s American Coin Silver spoon

Recently got this, and I believe it's a 1700s American coin silver spoon. It has "JM" maker's mark. I didn't have any luck finding a match. Can anyone ID the silversmith, and roughly when it was made? Thank you for any help! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48539182532_cdc151b9c7_z.jpg ...

Spoon with unknown hallmarks. Help needed!

I don't think it's that old, but more of a curiosity. Can anyone determine the age and country of origin for this spoon? The front has some lettering that looks like OND MILL SOPP along with 1748. It has some kind of crest so I'm assuming the date is related to the crest, not when the spoon was made...

Final questionable 1600s silver spoon... this one dated 1692

This is the third silver spoon that could be from the 1600s. There are no hallmarks but has an inscription on the bowl... one side has "AN 1692" and across from it is what I think reads, "Erindeing". Is this a possible fantasy piece, or really from 1692? Would this also be Norweg...

Re: 1697 Silver Spoon from Unknown Country?

I hope these new pictures can help!

Is this a 17th Century (possibly 1607?) Norwegian Silver Spoon?

I recently acquired this and was wondering if it's really a 1600s Norwegian silver spoon? It has hand engraving on he bowl and handle. The back has "O:HS" followed by a year, which may be 1607, or possibly 1637. It doesn't look like anything has worn off, but 1607 seems early. Can anyone a...

1697 Silver Spoon from Unknown Country?

Trying to figure out if this really is from 1697. The bowl has "EN ERING TRONDHIEM" along with a floral design (I'm wondering if this was added at a later date?). The back has "13 14" a "V" and maybe a deer hallmark. The handle has 3 more stamps, one is another 13 14 bu...
