To differentiate between father and son is difficult, and they both used the same marks on their silver.
It is known that Letelier, Sr. began working in Philadelphia in 1770. It is believed Letelier, Jr. began
working alongside his father in Chester County, PA in about 1795. To date, experts have been unable to
differentiate silver made by the father and that made by the son.
