Where To Sell Silver Plated Items Near Me
How Can I Tell If My Item Is Silver Plated?
A good rule of thumb is that, if the item does not say “sterling” or “925” its more than likely silver plated with the exception of older pieces (1800’s, early 1900’s). Our trained professionals will examine the pieces with you and then put these items on the scale and pay you cash.
A good way to tell if an item is silver-plated or not is by checking to see if it’s magnetic. If a magnet sticks to it, then it is usually silver-plated & maybe only silver toned. There is an exception to this rule though, silver-plated knives will have a steel piece inside holding the handle and blade together but still may have a silver plated handle.
Also, there are usually markings on the piece somewhere that will let you know if it is silver-plated. If it has words like Silver-Plated, Electroplate or Triple Plate, these are all indicators that the item is silver-plated. Other makers marks and letters (or acronyms) you might see include; EPNS (electroplated nickel silver), EP (electroplated) I.S. (International Silver), William Rogers, 1847 ROGERS BROS and many others are also silver plated pieces.
How Much Is Silver Plated Items Worth?
The short answer to this question is, not much. The actual silver amount on plated-silver things is so minute, that when refined, it takes over 75 lbs. of pounds of silver plated pieces to pull out just one ounce of pure silver. However, during that refining process, the other metals & alloys that the items are made of are also extracted making it a little more worth while for the refineries. That said, depending on the silver plated pieces you have, you can expect around twenty five cents to a dollar per pound depending on the piece.
