That skippet and this one are in turn nearly identical to the unmarked silver-gilt example attached to the Convention of the Adjustment of Claims with Mexico, ratified February 8, 1829, and to the silver one accompanying the Convention of Transit Way across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec (Mexico), signed in 1851.
Seraphim Masi made four skippets in 1824, another the following year, plus others up to about 1855 including gold ones for Commodore Perry's 1852 trip to China.
