Was Redfield & Rice known to have produced any coin or sterling flatware?

I often see their Medallion pattern (coffee?) spoons being sold as coin silver (never marked coin) and also as silver plated. Or, even worse, being sold with the disclaimer "I don't know if its ...". I know these were produced as plated ware, not sure that they were ever produced in coin or sterling. (There are some currently listed on eBay under coin silver, item #934989989.)

I haven't seen anything in the literature to indicate that they made anything but plate and have never seen any work that wasn't marked or otherwise obviously such. In the case of the ebay goods, they are also marked A1, so there is no question there.

I just bought one of their medallion goblets. There is no plate ware, but the surprising thing was that I could bend the misshapen goblet rim back to its original round shape with ny hands. Does that mean its composition is silver-over-copper, since both materials would be maleable?
