    I was researching the Grand Army of the Republic for MNopedia and came across the manufacturer information for this spoon. It was advertised in the Daily Pioneer Press. "St. Paul Souvenir Spoon." "The Largest, Lowest Priced Jewelry House in America" "A.H. Simon." "Corner of Seventh and Jackson Streets, St. Paul, Minnesota." --The Daily Pioneer Press, September 3, 1896 p.7
