Hinsdale coin silver spoon

Postby AllSeasons » Wed Sep 21, 2022 7:26 pm

I came across this HInsdale spoon, and I was hoping to get the forum's expert opinions again. I was able to find information on this silversmith on americansilversmiths.org, and here's the info below. However, I'm not sure about the 3 marks next to his name that make this look a lot like silver-plated. I guess my question is: Is this solid coin silver or silver-plated? Also, what is the significance of the other 3 marks? As always, appreciate any insight you can bring.

Hinsdale was the retailer. The wholesale pseudo marks have been attributed to Jacob Wood working in NYC while also in several partnerships. Dating is presumed to be c 1835-1845.

Is it single sided or patterned on the back, too? If the former, then earlier.

I just purchased the spoon. Looks like it's just patterned on the front.

Here's a picture of the back:
