Scrap silver is an unfortunate term. Some customers who want to sell silver think  it refers to broken and damaged silver, perhaps also industrial silver but in fact "scrap silver" is a term which is used in the trade to apply to all silver items that are worth more for their metal than they are as items. Many so-called antique items and old items are actually worth more for their silver weight BUT your local antique dealer is not under any obligation to take the metal price into consideration and they  often make an offer for an antique item BELOW the metal weight.  Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised how much more than antique value, they get for their items.

UK Silver Hallmarks

When you want to sell your silver you need to find out if it really is Silver and what grade you have. The problem with identifying it is the myriad of different hallmarks that you can find. Silver Plated items such as EPNS are not silver but always have some form of hallmark and then there are fake silver items to confuse the matter further.
To simplify matters if you see one of these marks or numbers on your item then it is likely to be silver...
800=80% silver, 925=92.5% silver (Sterling)  800 silver tends to be foreign silver (european in the main)

Silver hallmarks - Purity 925 etc


If you see any of the following marks on your item you can be even more sure. (and it will be English silver)

Silver marksby City London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Sheffield

if you also see a lion (see below), or a lion looking similar  you can be certain its silver (unless of course the marks are a criminal forgery! if in doubt please telephone us on 0121 448 0488
