Are you trying to assemble a personal collection? Buying for inventory? In either case, how deep are your pockets? While examples by talented, though not generally famous, makers can be had (with patience) at moderate prices, the top end of the list will run thousands per, even for a well worn spoon. Starting out, your money would be far better spent buying books and reading then. Then you can develop a plan of interest to begin collecting in.

Makers like Revere and Myers would most likely be out of the question, unless I find a super good price, which is highly unlikely. What would be a good beginner's book to buy? I guess not just coin silver, but maybe silver in general.
