Any information on this silversmith?


I purchased a grouping of coin silver spoons a few years ago. These particular spoons were grouped in with southern coin silver spoons. I haven’t been able to locate information on the silversmith; C. Hine. At least I believe it to be the silversmith.

I know some of the other markings were used to replicate British sterling identification but not being British at all. I’m thinking it’s American Southern coin silver but really have no idea. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
