Since we are not antique dealers or experts in serving wear, we cannot say for certain if your items are sterling or not.

Hi Clestine — Unfortunately without some more information we cannot give you an estimate on your items. For your 42 piece set, we would need to verify that what you have is sterling or not. For the carving set, because the handles are not made of precious metal we would not be able to provide a return on the deer horn handles that you describe.

In our experience, most of the blades on these sets are made of a different, harder metal such as stainless steel. Please contact us if you find that your pieces are in fact sterling: Please fill out our Request Estimate form here http: HI EA — We are not an antiques dealer nor do we specialize in sterling silver pieces. If you had a whole set of flatware and serving pieces, it may be worth sending in so that we can run a test on one piece.

Unfortunately since we do not specialize in the hallmarks of silverware, it is hard for us to say what you have is sterling or not just by the descriptions you gave. We would recommend taking your pieces to a local antique dealer that may specialize in silverware. Then contact us with the weights of the pieces that you know are sterling. Thank you for your comment. You have the patience of a saint to keep politely replying to these same people seeking antique appraisals when the previous answers make it clear that being in sleeves or a box or years old or a 2 year old broken piece is irrelevant to your purposes On behalf of the dim witted public I apologize and have no questions.

I have a single piece of the Roger bros. I found it when I was arrow head hunting. Its s memorial piece to me cause its the day I meet my fiance.

Thank you for any information you might have about it. We are not experts but if you do not see any markings that indicate sterling such as a , S, or SS — then there are good chances that you do not have a sterling piece.

However we cannot be sure unless we test at our labs. If you had many pieces it may be worth sending in one or two to test, however with just the one you may want to try somewhere locally first.

Best wishes — Arch. I am with the commenter, Angela, you do an excellent job of individually answering questions, often asked multiple times, with small variations from the public.

Do you know if your set is sterling silver or not? As mentioned in the post, that is the most important question probably when reselling.

On another note, if your set is complete, it may fetch more value as a complete sterling silver set on places like eBay. As precious metal refiners we would only pay on the silver content and not take into account the completeness, rarity, or condition of the set.
