American Coffee Pot


#1

Hi. So I have been trying to go through some silver items that my wife’s great aunt left us when she passed. The one item I have had trouble with seems to be a coffee pot. My research has led me to believe that it is American coin silver likely made by a company by the name of Hyde and Goodrich. It has markings in the base- the center one says H&G indicating Hyde and Goodrich. Then there are two ?pseudohallmarks- on the left the bust of a man and on the right an eagle. The base is also enscribed Charles Harrod New Orleans 1832.

We are trying to decide what to do with this silver we may keep it or sell it. Can anyone help me with the value? If we do decide to sell it, where would I start with something like this?

Thanks so much-
