UNUSUAL MOULTON COIN SILVER TABLESPOON - For Sale

UNUSUAL MOULTON COIN SILVER TABLESPOON
Price: $185.00
The maker's name MOULTON and the words "Mother Goose Silver Ver Goose" are on the reverse. There is also a drop on the back where the shank connects to the bowl, indicating that it is an early spoon. Do you know to whom the reference "Mother Goose Ver Goose."? At the time Moulton was a silversmith in Newburyport, MA. there were many thoughts about the origin of Mother Goose tales. A slightly credible story of the origin of Mother Goose says that she was Elizabeth Foster (Ver)goose, wife of Isaac Vergoose, of Boston, Massachusetts. See page http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=1498 Mother Goose's "Gravesite," Granary Burying Ground, Boston, Massachusetts. See the gravestone of Mary, Isaac Vergoose's first wife. In any case, Elizabeth Goose did not compose the rhymes; rather, says the story, they were collected by her. Did this spoon belong to Elizabeth?
