This sterling souvenir spoon commemorates the state of Nebraska.
The top of the handle has a picture within a circle that is similar to Nebraska's State Seal. "The themes of transportation, industry, settlement, and agriculture are depicted on Nebraska's seal. A railroad train steams across the background, with mountains in the distance. A steamboat plies the waters of the Missouri River. A simple cabin and sheaves of harvested wheat portray the importance of settlers and agriculture. A blacksmith works at his anvil in the foreground."
The remainder has "Nebraska" embossed on the handle downward. "Sterling" is marked on the back of the handle along with a maker's mark. The mark has a tilted (to the right) crown through a cross but it does not appear to be the Manchester Silver Company mark – the crown is in the opposite direction and there is a double line on the bottom of the crown. I could find only one other spoon in this style and with the same marker's mark, and it was from Vermont.
The spoon measures 4 1/2" long. It is in very good condition.
It is in very good condition though it does have surface scratches that one expects of vintage sterling silver.
