T. Dunlap - who was he in relation to Coin or Sterling mfg.
Has anyone heard of a maker of coin silver by the name of "T. Dunlap"? I have searched the net and all I can find are ebay sales where "T. Dunlap" is mentioned as the hallmark but no background. I'd like to know where and when he was in business if anyone knows. He is not listed in the silvermarks directory on line. Thank you so much. Hilda

Thomas Dunlap (1822-1892)was a silversmith working in New Hampshire from 1850 to 1888. He worked in partnership with other silversmiths for most of his career. Since the mark you are looking for is T. Dunlap, it might be assumed that these items were made after 1884.
