One of my areas of interest is 1850's through 1870's die-stamped patterns. Here (hopefully) is a picture of 4 of my "unknowns." Does anyone know the correct pattern name/maker/intro date for any of them?

From left to right, the 1st is incised with the retailer "Haslett & Hennedy"; the 2nd is marked only "coin"; the 3rd carries the mark of Coles & Reynolds; and the 4th is incised with the retailer "I. Garrison". For identification in my own catalog, I call them "IVY & ACORN," "ARABESQUE," "WINGED FIGURE," and "GOTHIC."

Mack Kelly of Northcliff Trading Company reports that he has been collecting the twist pattern shown above for years. He reports "Some are marked "coin" some W&H one nut pick is marked with the Gorham psuedo Hallmarks and both nut picks have Tiffany Retailers marks. The two engraved knives are marked W&H 1864" This is a fascinating full line pattern. Click on the links below to see the photos. Have patience they are big files.



We would appreciate any further information anyone has.
