My regular dining silver is Colonial Fiddle by Tuttle. The knives are luncheon size and all marked "TUTTLE" with the pine tree and the crescent (LBJ). Also "STAINLESS" is incuse on the blades.

I have one dinner size knife, similarly marked, although I can't detect the president's initials, but on the blade is "TUTTLE" incuse.

Can anyone suggest when and why "TUTTLE" on the blade was changed to "STAINLESS"? -- or vice versa?

Also, if the marks on the stainless steel blade are truly incuse, what sort of a die would have been used?

I don't know the answer definitively, but I wonder if the change occurred after Wallace purchased Tuttle Silver in 1955-your stainless bladed pieces date from the 1960's obviously, so perhaps the earlier presidential seal pre-dates the 1955 changeover.
