Does Jackson, Grimwade or any other show a maker for these initials? Wyler lists it, but as Unknown.

Grimwades lists a mark for Joseph Dodds entered in 1789, which has a pellet between the letters, bust also states that there were two similar marks entered in 1790, so perhaps one did not have a pellet. The only other potential option for the timeline is James Darquis, Jr., who entered a mark with a pellet between in 1787; no mention of other marks registered.

There are pictures of his marks accompanied by London hallmarks. Not saying "this is your guy" but another avenue to explore.

Here's an ID I'm trying to ID. Single mark near the base of the stem of table/serving spoon that I think dates to around 1780. I see a few that look similar in the English directories, but those all are accompanied by other marks - this is a stand alone mark. Is this provincial Irish/Scottish ?
