Here is an interesting handmade ice cream set by Gorham with a slice and twelve spoons. The only mark on each piece is Gorham's "C" mark. Each piece has a different Roman coin at the top (the coins, if they are not genuine, are very realistic looking). The coins were applied separately to the pieces. There are 10 different coins on the spoons (2 designs are repeated), and the slice has a large coin with a great face on the reverse. The spoon bowls have a hammered finish and are all slightly different from each other in shape.

Here are some pictures of the coins, including a comparison of one of the repeating designs.
