Engraved 1786 Coin Silver Service – Basting Gravy Spoon Dated 1786
Basting Gravy Spoon Coin Silver engraved date 1786 on backside. The front of the spoon is engraved P. Matson. This spoon does have a good balance and is heavier than most coin silver. This spoon is 229 years old, George Washington would take office as President 3 years later in 1789! This is a wonderful and beautifully maintained piece of American silver.
DIMENSIONS: 8 ¾” long
CONDITION: I have lightly polished it but polishing silver is not my way to zen so it could stand another polishing.
