Anyone know who SL is? The S is somewhat "lazy". On a 9.5" brightcut spoon. 1780's-90's maybe ?

Could this be Samuel Lockwood of Bermuda?

It would help if you explained the rationale for your suspicion.

I did a little looking for the mark and so far nothing.

There is an interesting article that mentions Samuel Lockwood of Bermuda:

Someone sent me a picture of his mark from the "Made in Bermuda" publication, but it is not very clear. Pic follows:

My eye says they are not the same/or similar.

Tks. I can see some similarities in the lazy S and the L - but it's not an ideal match. Closest I've come so far but will keep searching...
