Hi Kan,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your spoon.

Could you very kindly attach a photo of it and a clear one of the marks and I'll identify it for you and give you a value.

Many thanks,
Robert

PS. Once you have the photos in your computer (if you are using a smart phone camera, just email them to yourself) it's then a simple matter to attach them. Just click on the paperclip icon, located above the text box where you are typing to me. If there's no paperclip, click on the "Add files" tab.

If you get stuck go here for help.

Alternatively, if you can collar a passing teenager with an iPhone they would have photos posted here in about two minutes. Thanks R.
