Day 213 – The Colorado Spoon

On August 1, 1876, Colorado became the 38th state in the Union. This Colorado spoon, made by Eugene L. Deacon of Denver, Colorado (who also made the Pocatello, Idaho rebus spoon) was manufactured sometime between 1900 and 1912. 

The bowl of the spoon has an engraving that touts the majestic height of Pike’s Peak (which, at 14,147 feet, is just a little shorter than Mount Rainier in Washington State).

At the very top of the spoon is the State Seal of Colorado, with the unmistakable Eye of Providence peering out at you, which confirms my theory that the Illuminati are in Colorado and I’m pretty sure they’re holding Half Life 3 hostage.
