Coin Silver Folding Pocket/Fruit Knife
The term coin silver usually refers to the silver flatware and hollow-ware made before 1870. The silver content is less than that of sterling silver which contains 92.5% silver; coin silver containing 90% silver.
A fantastic Coin Silver folding pocket knife, circa 1860, consisting of a regular blade and fruit spike. Both sides of the handle is heavily embossed with leaves and several varieties of fruit including bunches of grapes. The length of the knife when folded is 3 1/8" and 5/8" in width at the widest point. The blade is 2 1/4" in length and the fruit spike is 1 7/8" in length. The piece is stamped "Coin 2" at the base of the blade and weighs 1.2 ounces. There are no damages and the knife maintains a wonderful soft patina.
