Is this an American Hallmark?


#1

Wondering if anyone can tell me anything about this hallmark. The piece is a small spoon that came in with a lot of early coin silver I purchased. Design certainly looks American, but the make is very confusing. Any help greatly appreciated.

The design and shape of the spoon with applied handle and “early” construction look American. I agree that the mark does not not American, but for the life of me I can’t find anything like it in researching hallmarks.

Could it possibly be a pewter mark? It has the look of one.

I wonder if it might be European with that assay scrape mark (or possibly pseudo scrape mark). Or maybe American trying to look European?
