Silver and Flatware/spoon

Question

spoon  
I found this spoon with a 0900 stamp on the back...that's it.  No other identifying mark.  Could you perhaps identify this?  Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Answer
Hi, Stacey.

I'm sorry but I don't recognize this spoon.

Sometimes "900" means a spoon is made of 90% silver. However, that mark is usually combined with other marks. So, I would not trust this assumption 100%.

You might post your question along with a picture of the spoon and a picture of the mark on the forum at www.925-1000.com. Several experts participate in the forum and maybe one will recognize this piece.

Sorry I could not help.

Best wishes,

Jim
