I recently acquired a salt spoon mfg. by J.W. Forbes and noticed that the shell has wheat designs in it. Or maybe they are thistles. Has anyone seen this before? This is the first one I've come across. Tks.

Good photo, interesting detail.

It would be very nice if your posts included full front & back and the marks closeup.
