Sterling Silverware

Buying Sterling Silverware and Tableware 

Nashville Coin & Currency, Inc. 

   We are strong buyers of all Sterling Silver Flatware and Tableware. All sterling silverware is valuable for its silver content, and we are always buying, but we pay more than just the silver price for certain patterns and makers. Whether it’s a common pattern or a special one, we buy it all!  

To help you determine if your items are solid sterling, or just plated, use this information to guide you:

Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver with 7.5% copper alloy added for durability and will be
marked “Sterling” or “925”.  Sterling comes in many patterns from many different makers.

Coin Silver is also good silver.  It will be marked "coin".
It is not as pure as sterling, but coin silver is valuable for both silver value and antique value.
This marking is usually seen on spoons. Forks & knives are rarely made of coin silver.

Silver plated hallmark
Here are some common markings that are known to be silver plated.
Unfortunately, silver plated items do not contain enough silver to make them valuable.
They may have hallmarks, but will not have the word “Sterling”.

They are bought and sold by the pound for the copper they contain under the plating.

IS, International Silver
EPNS (electroplated nickel silver)
A1,  AA,  AAA,  Double,  Triple,   EPC
Sheffield,  German Silver,  White Metal
Community,   Electroplated Base Metal,   EP

English or European hallmarks and markings can be very confusing.  Many are valuable, some are not.  We are to happy to help you determine the values of these as well.
