WEV here is one that is a bit odd... any comments? I have never seen one like it.



Coin Spoon Cornelius Kievstede New Haven 1702
This very old & very unique coin spoon is believed to be by Cornelius Kievstede of New Haven,CT. Cornelius was born 1674 and died 1757. Spoon is circa 1702-1729 and has a delicate engraving along the handle. The back has the makers marks and what looks like engraved initials.
Measures 5"

I ran across it as well. I rather doubt it is by Kierstede; it is more likely Dutch or Scandinavian of the mid 19th century.

Hard to make out, but I can see enough of the hallmark of the central helmeted figure to see that it is a 19th-century Dutch mark.
