Yes, that post is very helpful - not sure how I missed that one when searching. Anyway... the one unsolved thing after reading that is the 3rd mark down on my spoon which may be a cursive "M" and one other intertwined letter. That appears to be the all important makers mark but who is it? Would be great to know the makers name and there are very few records of Norway makers marks / initials that far back that in could find anywhere.
The user "blakstone" who answered back in 2008 may know the answer - but my being a newbie of sorts don't know how to flag that user to see if they can take a look at that maker's mark? Guess I could send them a PM but is there a way to flag a user in a post so they know they were mentioned?
