Todays silver.
« on: October 01, 2016, 07:12:57 PM »
Out today with Billy and got a Victorian shilling 1873 and one and a half spoons, the spoons were in very bad condition  so thought I would have my first go with a blowtorch and see what I could do, much more practice needed but not bad for first go. No hallmarks that I can see but the complete spoon has a makers mark WT and is engraved IEB.
Thanks again Billy for a good days detecting.
