Good Morning,

I'm researching several coin silver spoons and am stumped by several hallmarks. I've searched books on NC Silver, SC Silver, GA Silver, Tennessee Silver, Virginia and Alexandria, VA,. Also Ensko & Rainwater.

J. Einstein in rectangle is on a fiddle style coin silver tablespoon with tipped end on the front side, oval pointed bowl, pointed shoulders and slender shaft.

B & SD in oval and lion facing right, head, and a G are on a fiddle style coin silver teaspoon and tablespoon with tipped end on the back side, oval pointed bowl, sugarloaf shoulders and slender shaft.

I found the lion facing right, head, and a G
associated with several makers, however, not B&SD.

I'd apprecaite any direction and/or assistance about where to find information on these makers.

I can post jpgs if that would be helpful.

Thank You

I checked Belden, Wyler, and a few others, but found no listings. Could you post the scans?
