I don't think I have an antique but do have a silver over…

Customer Question
Hi Kim, I don't...

Hi Kim, I don't think I have an antique but do have a silver over copper coffee/tea pot that has a crown on the bottom along with silver over copper, some initials (a couple I can't make out) and the word (Reg). The pot has two prongs on both sides to balance it on a serving stand. What does the crown and Reg indicate? Thank you

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Well, the initials appear to be LSC with the L being more of a guess. The best thing about the purchase was that it was at the end of a garage sale day and was on the 1.00 table.
