Default Need Help Dating This Pewter Spoon.

Found a late 1800's bottle dump a few days ago. Spotted two pieces of a pewter spoon today. I think they're part of the same spoon, but believe there's one more piece still missing. The handle has a hallmark that might read "LR" or possibly "L&R". I'd like opinions on the age of this spoon. Thanks!

I have found the best way to get help in dating a spoon, is to ask its parents
