In sorting some flatware last night I found a plain little spoon with a crossed key and anchor engraved on the handle. On the back was a shamrock hallmark engraved with 90 next to it and off to the side a faint 6. Wonder if this may be Irish with a family crest.

It appears to be either SP or sterling.

Any ideas? Sorry for no photo but that photobucket thing is something I have not got a handle on as yet.

From your brief description is sounds like a silverplated souvenier spoon of some kind. If you take the time to go through the instructions for posting photos one step at a time you should be able to add a photo that would be essential for saying much more.

From the description it most probably does sound like that. However looking at it, it I feel very certain it is something otherwise. I will try and find a picture server that works for me better than what I have tried in the past.

If you click on the "How to Post Photos" link under the big light green box at the top of every page there are some suggested free webhosting sites. The one many people seem to have good luck with is photobucket, though I prefer using the free space my internet company gives me with my account.
