Sterling silverware plate marks - sterling silver flatware

Looking at Silver Plate Marks for Your Sterling Silver Items

We do not purchase silver-plated items, unfortunately. Often have customers come into our jewelry and pawn shop and ask us “I want to sell my sterling silver, but how do I know it is real?” Well the best way to determine if a piece that looks like sterling silver is in fact sterling silver, is to look for a silver plate mark.

These silver stamps typically appear on silver place settings, cutlery and silver flatware. While some countries do not require silver stamps, most do, which makes this such a great way to tell if your sterling silver pieces are real. The most common silver-plate marks are American Silver Plate, Silver on Copper, Quadruple Plate, Triple Plate, Fine Silver Plate, E.P, S.P, E.P.N.S and Special Metal.

Here at our Quincy, MA pawn jewelry store, we pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of sterling silver jewelry and flatware and on the unique history of sterling silver. We want to purchase your sterling silverware for cash! Always looking to educate & inform our customers on how to get the most money for their sterling silver pieces, here is a brief history lesson on sterling silver.

  • Prior to 1906 Stamping Act, there was no national regulation for sterling silver.
  • The 1906 Stamping Act required all items being sold as sterling silver to be marked as sterling.
  • There are many silver-plated companies in the market that use copper and pewter as base metals and are stamped “silver plate.” Stamps that read, “silver plate,” only have a very thin layer of silver “plating” over a base metal. Because of this they don’t have much value.

Just because an item is a white metal, it doesn’t mean that it is real sterling silver or that it is valuable. White metals can be pewter, copper, brass, tin, and several other base metal combinations. Just because it tarnishes; does not make it sterling silver. It is old it must be worth money. Age, is not an immediate indication These sterling silver fakes appear sterling silver at first glance. Stamps such as; Sterling, 925, 925/1000, 900/1000, coin silver, are an indicator of real silver the majority of the time. However, in order for a piece to be classified as real sterling silver, it needs to have a 925 or a 925/1000 stamp on it. This means it is made of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals.

When you look at your sterling silver flatware, you may also see the number represented in decimal form as .925.

What Are the Average Sterling Silver Flatware Prices?

This all depends on the current spot price of silver in the open market that day. Over the last ten years silver spot market has ranged between $13.00 per troy oz & as high as almost $50.00 per troy ounce. Typically full sterling flatware sets range on the miss matched set for $100.00 to $5,000.00 & Up depending on the silver spot price, the weight and purity of the silver, along with the age and Silversmith who made it. Don’t be fooled by the reality TV Shows that think you have rare pieces that are found every episode on TV. The great thing about sterling silver flatware pieces is that they tend to be quite heavy.

I Want to Sell Old Silverware, How Do I Tell if it is Sterling Silver?

We have many customers come into our Quincy, Ma & Milton, MA & soon all over the United States with our GoldPawnerShip App where you can find the closest location near you. Get the fast cash instantly or borrow short term. All in a convenient app on your smart phone. I want to know if they have pieces that are real sterling silver or something else. The best way to tell if a piece is sterling silver is to look for a stamp that has a 925 on it. This is because real sterling silver is made of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, mostly copper. The stamp may also just say that the piece is “real silver” or “fine silver.” However, it is important to note that some sterling silver pieces, created in certain countries may not require a stamp. Look for the “Sterling” stamp on the silverware.

If the stamp has a 900 or 800 on it then it is only 90% or 80% silver, or “coin silver.” You can also test your piece with a magnetic. Real silver will not strike strongly to a magnet.

Sterling Silverware Candlesticks - sterling silver flatware

My Sterling Silver Candlesticks are Very Heavy. How Much Cash Can I Get?

This all depends on the actual net-weight on your sterling silver candlesticks, not the gross weight. If you have sterling silver candlesticks to sell, we will take the time to weight each candlestick and compare it to the current market price of sterling silver so you can get the most cash possible for your pawn or sale. The sterling silver candlesticks are weighted with clay or sand and sometime will say weighted. This is the same case for sterling silver candelabras and sterling silver salt and pepper shakers with glass and clay in them. Think of…peeling a tuna can or soup can open and how thin the metal on the top is. This is similar to the thickness of the sterling on these pieces.

My Sterling Silver Knives are Old and Tarnished Like Silver, It Must be Real, Right?

Not necessarily. Just because your silverware looks like sterling silver, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your knives and flatware are made of real sterling silver. Real silver is supposed to tarnish, but there are other metals that tarnish, or give the appearance of tarnishing as well. The best way to tell if your flatware is real sterling silver is to look for a stamp on it. The stamp should say .925 on it to indicate that the piece is 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent other metals. If for some reason you can’t find the stamp, bring your piece into our Milton, MA pawn jewelry store and we can help identify your piece for you.

Sterling Silver Butter knives, sterling silver dinner knives, sterling silver can openers, are very well made and strong. There are actually steel blades on the inside of the handles where the clay is glued and wrapped around so the silver that is thin is surrounded by the clay. The steel rod connects to the stainless-steel cutting blade. Sterling knives have a silver handle, stainless steel rod and stainless-steel cutting blade.

Why does my Silver Tarnish? It must be real!

Sterling silver pieces tarnish because in its purest form, silver is too soft to use for jewelry, cutlery and other pieces, so copper is typically added to the silver to make it more durable. This is why real sterling silver is only made of 92.5% silver. Unfortunately, because sterling silver pieces need to be made with copper to withstand consistent use and wear, they will discolor, because the copper discolors when it is exposed to certain compounds, the air and even oils and chemicals on the skin. In fact, this is why even real sterling silver rings can turn your finger a color.

Over time, any piece of sterling silver will darken or tarnish. A great way to prevent this from happening is to polish your sterling silver regularly to keep it looking its best.

What Are the Most Expensive Sterling Silver Brands?

Don’t organize yourself. We can offer a cash price to sell or a price to sort your items for a fee. There are several very famous sterling silver brands out there.
