::: I read a rumor that sometimes the makers' marks that appear twice are sometimes from York? :::

A maker's mark struck twice on an early 18th century spoon could be London or, I guess, any of the regional centres. Ebenezer Coker of London, who is a known spoon maker, entered a mark similar to these in 1738 but I would not want to claim this is definitively the same mark.

Could a kind person please check "Ebenezer Chittenden" and see what you think?

Also, this thread should be moved to the American Coin Silver forum, sorry for the confusion.

I think Chittenden is a fair attribution - there are enough similarities in the marks.

Thank You. I think I leaped to absurd conclusions (again, as usual) once I found the teaspoon from Cork, I assumed the rest were all English Provincial.
