Hello all, I am new to the forum, but will use it frequently because I deal in silver on a daily basis. I am a metal detectorist and have found myself in a research gridlock with my most recent silver excavation. I recovered a sterling spoon with a maker's mark, duty mark, date mark and passant lion. The maker's mark is faint but most certainly "Samuel Lynch." The duty mark is George III, the date mark is "D" and there is the lion of course. I would love to know the history on the company and individual that made this spoon. It was found in North Carolina, in the USA. I understand that my spoon is mangled but that does not take away from the curiosity that it has placed in me. Can anyone please help?
