I found this at a1700s house. I also found two plated spoons as well that day. Before this permission I found no spoons. I'll take it.

Lots of folks have forks.
In my life there have been a few folks I would have liked to stab with forks.

Default did someone say spoons

Here is a little fella i found last year on a 1700's homesite that is still lived in. I gave it to the homeowner. He figures it was a salt spoon; cleaned it up and put it with his other historical stuff.



Its about 2 inches long.

Found a huge spoon in the woods yesterday. It was about 5 inches deep.

Took it home and saw the back had "PANAMA SILVER" embossed on it. Was very excited until I Googled Panama Silver. It's a mixture of nickel, copper and zinc. NO SILVER AT ALL. Nada.

Sumbeech.....

Not silver, just plated. But the first one I've found with a bullet hole in it.

Found my first spoon this weekend in an old cellar hole. I think it's pewter and quite old. Too bad it wasn't in better condition, but I'm happy to cross that off my bucket list.

Here it is my first spoon!! I'm happy with it very ornate and cool find imo! Not silver but apparently was silver plated. An not your typical table spoon it's a colectiable! Wish I could find out when it was made and more info on it. It's a spoon recongnizing the crew of the Merrimac a ship that went down in the Spanish and American war. I find it fascinating and love it. To think I was just gawking at all the lovely spoons on this thread about two weeks ago....thinking man I have yet to dig my first spoon... then BAM over the weekend!! Enjoy! Happy Hunting!!

This is the one intact silver plated spoon (William Hutton & Sons) that I found in the same park I found an 1861 S seated dime.
