Description

Due to a scarcity of silver in early America, silver smiths often melted down coins to obtain the raw materials needed to produce silver spoons; hence the term “coin silver”. David Perrin, author of “Coin Silver – Is it a Vermont Mark?”, discusses the origin of the process. Emphasis is placed on Vermont silver spoons made in early Burlington. This talk is of interest to both history buffs and those who enjoy collectibles.
