I have here an old tea spoon that my dad gave to me, that he got from his grandma. It is very old.

On the handle on the back it has EPNS.

The handle has a man on it that looks like he is wearing a cloak.

Could someone help me value this.

Thanks

Hi there - EPNS stands for Electro Plated Nickel Silver, in other words, silver plated and of little or no value.

This type of spoon is normally known as an Apostle Spoon.
