Okay I get the imprint and all... but why on a *spoon*?! And do you think that symbol was put on the whole set of silverware?

its possible that was put on a whole set but after looking more into the american silver company it seems the majority of there silverware where what id call classy silverware most that i have seen had detailed carvings more for show i guess..novelty items it seems to me. so maybe this is a novelty spoon or somthing. ive searched and searched and have yet to come up with anything as far as value or how rare it may be,cant even find one similar. id like to find out tho.
