Hi,

I've been sent some images of a spoon and the marks that are unknown to me:

Can anyone cast any light on this one?

Any thoughts appreciated.

Hi Trev,

I think this may be John Vernon of New York, moving to the American section.

From an advertisement from John Vernon:

"Mr. Vernon's plate may be known from English plate in that it has his initials I. V., and an American eagle's head instead of the British Lion, stamped upon all important pieces. It is of the best quality silver."
