Most countries around the world that manufacture sterling silver items indicate the purity of the silver used in order to identify the silversmith, company and/or the purity of the pieces made. In order for us to purchase sterling silver flatware pieces, the item must bear one of the following stamps on them (their may be some other hallmarks as well). Simply check for the following stamps on your silver flatware.
The short answer, YES!
Sterling silver is made of 92.5% silver and the rest is made up of copper and other alloys. Because of this, unless a piece, brand or style is a collectible one, most sterling silver flatware will be purchased as silver scrap that will later be refined and repurposed into pure silver.
The refining process isn’t cheap to do, but necessary in order to produce other much more needed components used today such as solar panels, batteries and electric vehicles. Or even pure silver bars.
So, although sterling flatware is almost pure silver, due to the refining process, the buy rate for scrap sterling flatware is a bit less than that of pure 999 silver.
Put into perspective, if your piece isn’t a collectible type, for a dinner fork (a little over an ounce of silver) you can expect to receive about $18 to $20 each compared to a one ounce silver bar valued at $25 to $26.
So yes… Sterling silver flatware can still be worth quite a bit of money, and are certainly worth selling.
Due to the vast verity of makers, hallmarks, patterns, styles and purity levels; the best way to sell sterling silver flatware is to bring it in to our shop and let us evaluate it for you. It is a relatively quick process and we walk you through each small step.
Which is to… identify hallmarks & purity stamps, test it for purity, weigh each item and make an offer.
And then, pay you in cash or a check. Which ever you prefer 😉
