Rainwater shows that prior to 1875 a small script “m” for Moore, was used along with the “Tiffany & Co.”, a capital “M” from 1875 to 1891, a “T” from 1891-1902, a “C” from 1902 to 1907 and then back to the small script “m” up through 1965. I would be grateful if someone could tell me how to distinguish the pre 1875 “m” from the post 1907 “m”.

Shown below are a luncheon fork with the ‘m’ before the Tiffany & Co., which could be prior to 1875 :

The second is a salad fork with a slightly different looking ‘m’ after the Tiffany & Co., which is less likely to be prior to 1875.

Would love to have some expert opinion on the dates of these.
