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.
